THE FLYING KARAMAZOV BROTHERS

BECOME THE FIRST SHOW

TO PRESENT AN INTERACTIVE ONLINE BROADCAST

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

THE NEW YORK TIMES CALLS

THE FLYING KARAMAZOV BROTHERS

“A TRIUMPH”

Thursday, October 7, 2010 – Last night The Flying Karamazov Brothers at the Minetta Lane Theatre became the first show to present a live interactive online broadcast when a portion of the show known as “The Gamble” was broadcast over the internet.

For “The Gamble” the live Minetta Lane audience is invited to bring objects to the theater for the Karamazovs to keep airborne in a real challenge that ends either with a pie in the face or a standing ovation, making each show a unique experience and sometimes a messy one. 

The online broadcast, which will take place for ALL evening performances, features this section of the show and adds an interactive component.  Those watching online can chat live with cast and crew at the theatre AND can bet on whether or not Karamazov Brother Dmitri (Paul Magid) will win the live audience’s challenge or not.  Those betting can earn points towards redemption at the show (in exchange for tickets, drinks, t-shirts, and other show merchandise).

This arrangement gives people all over the world a nightly opportunity to watch live New York theatre via their computers, Facebook, or mobile devices.

(Additionally, the show can monetize the online broadcast by selling ads against it, providing a new revenue stream for theater.)

Last night’s broadcast may be viewed at: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10040942.

The critics raved about The Flying Karamazov Brothers:

    “A triumph.   As close to a sure thing as can be found onstage.  100 minutes of cleverness and comedy that go by in a flash.”  The New York Times

     “Get to the Minetta Lane Theatre and give your inner child a hundred minutes of fast-paced fun.  From the moment they go on stage…these four funny men get the audience laughing.  A triumph of theatrical silliness combined with serious juggling skills and musicianship.”  Associated Press

     “Delightful.  They juggle till they drop, then they keep on juggling.”  Time Out New York

     “Nobody leaves the theater without a big grin.”  Variety

     “Whether they’re tossing around tenpins or balls, they do it with such power, skill and grace that it takes on its own rhythmic elegance and beauty.”  Daily News

A unique blend of music, comedy, dance, theater, and juggling that is sure to dazzle young and old alike, The Flying Karamazov Brothers are New York’s favorite multi-faceted new-vaudevillians at the apex of their ambidextrous and alliterative ability.  Come watch the Flying K’s as they prove with each performance that chaos and unexpected events in our lives are the best part of being human.
