LES – MAY 23, 24 and 25, 2014
FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY
The LOWER EAST SIDE FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS is The most electric, eclectic festival in the world. Free in every sense of the word.
A Reminder to old friends and an LES primer for friends to be: LES is Theater, Music, Dance, Comedy, Poetry, Aerialists, Performance Art, Film, Video and Fine Art that takes place on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Memorial Day Weekend (May 23rd, 24th and 25th).
LES tips its hat and heart to the pantheon of greats who lived and created and performed their art on the Lower East Side and the East Village in the past, such as: George and Ira Gershwin, The Adlers, Molly Picon, Irving Berlin, Charlie Parker, Yip Harburg, Eugene O’Neill, Garcia Lorca, Mark Twain, James Cagney, Fanny Brice, George Raft, Eddie Cantor, and the list stretches on…
As always, LES also rejoices in our present and future by throwing wide our stages to today’s established stars and those on the threshold and many just getting their talented toes in the door.
Because on the Lower East Side and East Village, brilliance has always shown through every color, language, cultural and sexual prism, so, naturally, does LES. And because we deem our artistic banquet priceless—we keep it FREE!
