Posts Tagged ‘2010 Drama Desk Nominees’

Pure genius is how I would describe John Tartaglia’s “Imaginocean,” playing at the New World Stages in New York City (340 West 50th Street). This is one of the best pieces of theatre I have ever seen. From the concept to the show itself to the positive message it sends. Nominated for a 2010 Drama Desk Award for “Unique Theatrical Experience,” this live black-light puppet show is the perfect way for kids and adults alike to spend time together. “Imaginocean” takes you on an undersea adventure with three fish friends: “Tank,” “Bubbles,” and “Dorsel” as they discover the true meaning of friendship while learning how to help others, face their fears, and use their imagination.

Imaginocean” teaches these life lessons in a fun and innovative way using brilliant lyrics, music, and story along with humor and bubbles! Come see how all of these ingredients add up to one of the most memorable theatre experiences both you and the child you love will enjoy!
