For those of you who missed it, this is the promo video we showed at our Spring Gala for our upcoming performance of The Ring Cycle (pt. 1) at undergoundzero 2010. Huge thanks to Matt Jablin for putting this together for us.
In the 1920′s, when rents in Harlem started going up, people got the idea of having a few friends over as paying party guests a few days before the landlord’s monthly visit. The guests had a great time, and it cost them much less that they would have spent in some public amusement place. Thus the rent party was born.

With the economy the way it is, and the theatre the way it is, PL115 has come up a little short on rent at the end of our season. What could be better than a rent party?
We cordially invite you to Rachel’s questionable apartment for some dancing and bathtub gin. (Don’t worry. We’ll tell her to clean the bathtub.)
