January 13, 2012 – The Public Theater (Artistic Director Oskar Eustis; Executive Director Patrick Willingham) will begin previews of GOB SQUAD’S KITCHEN (You’ve Never Had It So Good), devised and performed by the German/British Collective GOB SQUAD on Thursday, January 19. A hit at last year’s Under the Radar Festival, GOB SQUAD’S KITCHEN will run through Sunday, February 5 in the Newman Theater with an official press opening on Monday, January 23.

{module ad_left_body}”The biggest, noisiest, splashiest, most-in-need-of-an-immediate-return-engagement show [from last year’s Under the Radar Festival] was Gob Squad's Kitchen, an entirely mediated experience in which the audience sits before a screen while the cast drolly recreates Andy Warhol’s classics.”- Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

It's 1965 and everything is just about to happen. The German/British collective GOB SQUAD invites you to take the hand of the King of Pop himself, Andy Warhol, and take a trip back to the underground cinemas of New York City, back to where it all began. GOB SQUAD’S KITCHEN reconstructs Warhol's films in the quest to illuminate the past for a new generation, reflecting on the nature of authenticity, the here and now, and the hidden depths beneath the shiny surfaces of modern life.

GOB SQUAD’S KITCHEN features video by Miles Chalcraft, sound design by Jeff McGrory, and stage design by Chasper Bertschinger.

GOB SQUAD’S KITCHEN performance schedule is Wednesday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.; Sundays at 7:00 p.m. There is an additional performance on Tuesday, January 31 at 7:00 p.m. Single tickets, priced at $60-$70, are on sale now and can be purchased by calling (212) 967-7555, by visiting www.publictheater.org, or in person at The Public Theater box office. The Public Theater is located at 425 Lafayette Street. Rush Standby tickets are $20 and, subject to availability, are sold 60 minutes before each performance at The Public Theater Box Office.
