Festival Details - "Permission to Speak (Live Theatre) on April 20, 2024 at the Tarrytown Music Hall"...

Start: Saturday, April 20, 2024 7:30PM

Four of the most brilliant minds in TV and movies come together to present the ground-breaking emotional live theater experience "Permission to Speak," at Tarrytown Music Hall on April 20th. Fresh off of a critically acclaimed, sold-out run off-Broadway, "Permission to Speak" features hilarious and jaw-dropping stories from audience members co-starring alongside Emmy and Peabody Award-winning comedian / actor Paul Mecurio, who punctuates the evening with his own jokes and anecdotes.
Among the show's creators, they have been honored with a combined 33 Emmys, 6 Peabodys and 2 Grammy Awards, but the real stars of the show are the audience themselves. With Paul at the center of the action, driving and guiding the fun, the evening takes on a life of its own. "You could see this show a dozen times and never see the same show twice." A transformation occurs when strangers cross paths and discover they have much more in common than they had thought. We prove what sets us apart can ultimately bring us together.

If Paul's name sounds familiar, it's probably because you saw him on one of his countless appearances on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," "CBS Sunday Morning," "The Tonight Show," HBO, NBC, ABC, MSNBC or his own Comedy Central TV special.

The show's Director and Producer, Frank Oz, brings a touch of his movie and TV magic to the stage of "Permission to Speak." Frank's credits include the major motion pictures "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," "Bowfinger," "Stepford Wives," and "Little Shop of Horrors." Oz's close collaboration with Jim Henson creating and performing many well-loved Muppet characters led to his iconic work as the voice and puppeteer of Yoda in the "Star Wars" franchise.

The set of "Permission to Speak" is as much a star of the show as anyone on stage and it's no wonder why. Behind the show's ingenious environment are 23-time Emmy Winner for Production Design, Jim Fenhagen, who is best known for countless late night TV shows, the Olympic Games and five Super Bowls, and animator J.J. Sedelmaier, the artist behind ground-breaking animation on MTV's "Beavis and Butt-Head," Saturday Night Live's "TV Funhouse" cartoons (including "The Ambiguously Gay Duo,") ABC's relaunch of "Schoolhouse Rock," and Cartoon Network's "Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law."

For all of the high-octane credentials of its A-List star and creators, the real magic of "Permission to Speak" is the humanity, candor and organic humor of its participants - and Paul - who all willingly share their fascinating stories, bringing the spectating audience on a fun, emotional journey that connects them all for an evening.
