NYU’s Gallatin School to Host “1001,” Jason Grote’s Post-Modern Telling of “Arabian Nights,” Nov. 4-14

October 18, 2010

NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study will host “1001,” Jason Grote’s postmodern re-telling of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, on November 4, 5, 11, and 12 (7 p.m.), November 6 and 13 (8 p.m.), and November 7 and 14 (2 p.m.) at its Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts (715 Broadway at Washington Place/entrance on 1 Washington Place). Subways: N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).

The performance is directed by Gallatin’s Kristin Horton, a clinical assistant professor whose works have appeared at Riverside Theatre, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and the National Black Theatre Festival, among other venues.

“1001” brings to the audience One Thousand and One Arabian Nights by way of Edward Said, Azar Nafisi, Borges, Hitchcock, Calvino, and Monty Python, among others, with a tale of separate worlds that mingle and inform each other.

“Grote's ability to vault from one paradigm to another has permitted him to hone a signature working method,” writes Celia Wren of the Washington Post. “He resolves to write a play in a given genre, or with given limitations (an Aristotelian unity of place, say), and then allows himself to stretch that prescribed form.”

The event is free and open to the NYU community and $10 for the general public. Tickets are required for entry. For tickets and a complete schedule of performances, go to Ticket Central at For more information, call 212.998.4941. Ticket cannot be purchased at the theatre. All group sales inquiries should be directed to Ticket Central before October 27.
