On October 29th, Newspeak will kick off its fifth anniversary season with a special late-night show at The Stone, part of a fantastic series of events curated by downtown diva Kathleen Supové.  We will offer four world premiere works, presented in order of increasing darkness/heaviness as we approach the witching hour, in honor of Halloween.   Not to be missed is Matt Marks’ “A Portrait of Glenn Beck,”  a re-imagining of Beck’s (in)famous 9/12 speech.

William Brittelle, Pegasus in Alcatraz (world premiere)
Matt Marks -  A Portrait of Glenn Beck (world premiere)
Dmitri Tymoczko, Let The Bodies Hit The Floor (world premiere)
