Bridge Street Theatre Presents THE SHAGGS: PHILOSOPHY OF THE WORLD Photo Bridge Street Theatre Presents THE SHAGGS: PHILOSOPHY OF THE WORLD
by Stephi Wild - Jun 17, 2019

Coming this summer to Catskill's adventurous Bridge Street Theatre - its first attempt at producing a full-scale summer musical! But, true to form, it's a pretty off-beat one: Joy Gregory and Gunnar Madsen's acclaimed Off-Broadway hit "The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World". It is based on the true story of three sisters from rural New Hampshire whose father forced them to form a rock band, and who recorded an album back in 1969 which has since become a cult classic. "The Shaggs" will play for eight performances only, Thursdays through Sundays July 11-21, in BST's intimate 84-seat Mainstage.
