TALES WITH TEETH is a collection of Don Nigro shorts with a nightmare theme, stories and characters from our childhoods: Jack (In the Box), Humpty Dumpty, Maria from the Nutcracker, Katrina from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Medusa, whose lives have turned out in ways they (or we) didn’t expect. The majority of these characters that originate from the Victorian era, another time when anti-intellectualism was ramapant and reading was uncool.
Nylon Fusion has been named by Backstage as one of eight “Young and Mighty Theatre Companies” in NYC and by Time Out NY as a “Rising Company”.
“Nylon Fusion Theatre Company is exactly the right kind of theatre for New York City now. It is young, multicultural, fearless. It provides an open door, inviting unrecognized talent on to the stage, providing entry, excitement, recklessness, candor and comedy, in a joyous atmosphere. There are new actors, directors, and playwrights in abundance. You will discover artists here. You will experience the rush of seeing them first. That’s what New York is all about. Discovery!” – John Patrick Shanley, Playwright
