In the days before I had a phone and I was board, I would make up stories. Imagining stuff, like what it was like to have three wishes.

Except from the point of view of the genie.

A genie’s secret agenda is to punish you for your hubris. To spank you with a board for making a wish that is only about selfishness.

“I wish for a million bucks.”

“Your wish is my command.”

Join John Pizza for another Full Moon Show called Being Board. A poetic examination of the endless chain of memories – like railroad ties, like floorboards, like a tree trunk.

John Pizza is a performer, builder, and drawer. He uses trash and thrift-store detritus scrounged in his Brooklyn neighborhood to tell stories and make his shows. He loves the macabre and the mushy sweet. His sculptures are performative, and his performances involve sculptures—an object theatre of weird surprises.

About Tom Murrin and the Full Moon Show

Performance is anything done with purpose and style—Tom Murrin

Howl! Happening is home to the archive of Tom Murrin, aka the Alien Comic and the Godfather of Performance Art. Every full moon—without fail, paid booking or not, in all seasons and whatever the weather—he performed his Luna Macaroona Full Moon Show. When he had a club date that fell on the full moon, he’d wrangle his friends to perform as guests—pushing the careers of such groundbreaking performers as David Cale, David Sedaris, Amy Sedaris, Blue Man Group, Ethyl Eichelberger, Lisa Kron, and many others. When he didn’t have a club date, he performed on the street for passersby, transforming the pedestrian atmosphere with his madness and magic.
