RELEASE THE KRAKEN (AKA THE RATCHET PLAY)

Thurs April 16 - Sun April 26

After a sold-out weekend at The Tank NYC back in September 2014, Release the Kraken returns, bigger, more offensive, and more RATCHET than ever before! Join us as we take an in-depth look at ratchetness, its impact and place in today's society, and its influence on pop culture. From situation talk shows to reality TV shows, from twerking to 'THOT's,' from Rastafarians to rednecks, this will be a no-holds-barred, fourth-wall-free, audience-interactive theatrical experience that will pull no punches and push every boundary! If you're easily offended, we apologize in advance, and above all else, remember this: THIS AIN'T FOR KIDS! Don't say that we didn't warn you! It’s a remix of social commentary that you have to experience to believe!
