Basil Twist’s Sister Follies

Mr. Ziegfeld had absolutely nothing to do with these spectral follies and eye-catching puppets. This strange and enchanting story of to sister ghosts haunting the Abrons Playhouse ignited audience’s imagination and the backdrop of the stage.The projection design was a character all its own as the sisters cast spells while floating through the air, inhabited the classic comedy/tragedy masks above the proscenium, and fire raged onstage.

Directed by Basil Twist (Spotlighted by Jim Henson foundation; 2015 MacArthur Fellow). Sister Follies is an October ghost story commissioned to celebrate the Abrons’ Playhouse Centennial anniversary in 2015.
