LITTLE BUILDING: Back By Popular Demand!

Come fall in love with a play about a building who falls in love with a man. Weird! Nice costumes! Good music! Cool! I'm in it! Look...I'm INSIDE a building. Just like in real life.

February 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, & 18. . .

Little Building:
a musical melodrama

directed by Nick Jones
with book and lyrics by Nick Jones
music by Benjamin Ickies

"breathtakingly ridiculous" -Nonsense NYC

"Finally, a modern love story which truly reflects the city in which we
live. . ." -Village Voice

"Brilliant. . . the songs rock, the jokes spark and you actually believe that these buildings are alive."

As featured in the NY Observer, Gawker and the NY Times!


Nick Jones, playwright, puppeteer, and licensed real estate agent, melds his
interests in this musical featuring singing real estate. Music provided by
Benjamin Ickies of the Ambitous Orchestra.

Ralph is a man trying to develop land in New York's hottest outlying
neighborhood - Alaska. He begins a metaphysical love affair with a talking
building, and together they attempt to create a Newer York City for the Arctic.
A bizarre and heartbreaking melodrama, in perfect proportion to the city we live in.
