Your independent guide to the best shows in New York

2124 Broadway, New York, NY 10023


Ended 20 Aug 2010 after 5 months

Banana Shpeel is the latest show from producer extraordinaire Marty Schmelky and features a colorful array of slapstick comedy, eclectic dance and unique acrobatic acts.

Closed 20 Aug 2010

Banana Shpeel is a roller-coaster mix of performance styles inspired by vaudeville that blends comedy with tap, hip hop, eccentric dance and slapstick, all linked by a hilarious narrative that ignites a succession of wacky adventures. This is not circus, or a musical or a variety show, or even vaudeville. It is Banana Shpeel!

Propelled by crazy humor and intense choreography, Banana Shpeel plunges us into the world of Schmelky, a brash, ambitious producer who is trying to put together a spectacular variety show. His world is populated with sidekicks, dancers, singers and novelty acts - and a trio of badly-behaved clowns who crash the auditions spreading chaos in all directions.

April 29, 2010 - August 29, 2010

Run time:  The recommend age for Banana Shpeel guests is eight and up.
