OF HONEY BEES AND THE BREVITY OF SUCH THINGS

February-03-2011 – February-13-2011

The story of two turnip farmers chasing honey bees and dreams.”
“A New Indie Rock Musical”
By Aaron and Anna Jones
Directed by Brett Goldstein
Pennsylvania, 1889. Two turnip farmers, Peter and Mary, suddenly lose their entire turnip crop in a ferocious winter frost. With little left to live on, they wander through the woods, searching for a solution, and seem to find their answer in the wonderful (and highly sought after) honey of the Buffalo Bee. Turnips! Honey! Trains! Exposition Universelle! Part myth, part made up, the story deals in dreams and success: what defines them, who defines them, and how they define us.
For more information visit the website
Honeybees will run From Feb 3-Feb 13th at 17 Frost. Performances are at 8 pm Thursday-Sunday.
Purchase tickets online here.

An Evening with Joel M. Reed

January-22-2011 – December-22-2010


**5-8PM & 9-12AM Shows**
It's hardly surprising Joel M. Reed's name still remains a relevant and often inflammatory element in underground film history nearly 30 years after his last film was released. Born in New York in the early 30's Mr. Reed's work has been the subject of controversy for decades. His uncensored and often disturbing looks at the extreme obsessions of human appetites has been a source of inspiration for many Gr...indcore fans and filmmakers and has garnered the admiration of Oliver Stone among others.
Despite the nearly overwhelming prominence of cult films today, Joel remains an important figure in the creation of this genre at a time when the material was under direct attack by activist and censorship elements. His most infamous film, "Blood Sucking Freaks", based off of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ "Wizard of Gore" follows the demented dealings of Sardu the Magician as he subjects kidnapped woman to S&M/Grand Guignol style performances on stage.
Considered one of the most controversial films of all time by AMC's filmsite.org Mr. Reed's abilities to push boundaries and execute a film that speaks to both the horrific and the humorous remains his defining specialty.

Mr. Reed will be appearing at 17 Frost St in Brooklyn NY on January 22nd. There will be a double screening of his film "Bloodsucking Freaks" (at 5pm and 9pm) along with 2 talk and Q&A's with Mr. Reed.

Screening of Bloodsucking Freaks 5:10
