All performances are currently Sold Out. Waiting Lists will be taken on the day, in person only beginning at 5 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and 3 pm on Friday.

A world premiere theatrical performance adapted from Kurt Vonnegut's profoundly funny 1985 novel, Galápagos, is the latest production from the creative duo, Tucker Marder and Christian Scheider. Climb aboard the “Nature Cruise of the Century," witness the brainlessness of eternity, and watch one million years of evolution from the luxurious sun decks of the Bahia de Darwin—the cruise-ship/cradle of all mankind. Marooned on the Galápagos archipelago, man must adapt or face extinction; will humanity finally evolve away from from their tiresome, deadly brains? 

Endorsed by the Kurt Vonnegut Trust for the Arts, this adaption brings Vonnegut’s novel to life as it approaches its 30th anniversary year. Featuring live orchestral underscoring, extraordinary puppets, and satirical physical comedy, this production is a powerful interpretation of Vonnegut’s classic work. Galápagos follows last summer's sold-out production of The Murderer by Ray Bradbury, also adapted by Marder and Scheider. The creative team behind this production are all young artists living in the New York Area, most of whom reside on Long Island, including actress Chloe Dirksen (East Hampton), composer Forrest Gray (North Haven), actor Sawyer Spielberg (East Hampton), and set designer Evan Desmond Yee (Sag Harbor ). 

Performances will take place in the Lichtenstein Theater. Galápagos is one act with no intermission. Mature content; not recommended for children under 18.
