Peach Fuzzy: A Hairstory by Mark Pagan
About the Show
What happens when a boy wakes up to find out that puberty has turned his body into a mustache? Mark Pagán presents the only coming-of-age story involving mysterious stubble patches, gap-toothed Francophones, Teddy Pendergrass, treasure trails, Russian lasers, fake cancer scares, clandestine salon visits, and wax. Lots of wax.

About Standard ToyKraft
Big thanks to our partners at Standard ToyKraft, who are giving us a home for our shows during our dark months at our regular home in Times Square! Why are we dark in Times Square? Because our lease is funky! #nonprofitarts We'll be back up and running at 151 West 46th in Manhattan in January.
Standard ToyKraft is an artist run theater that offers low-cost performance and rehearsal space as well as a puppet shop and private studios for visual artists. The founders of STK discovered a derelict factory floor located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn With lots of blood, sweat and more tears than any of us care to admit we transformed this old sweatshop into a community organization. At the core Standard Toykraft is a community endeavor. Our community of artists continues to grow in this tough city because, we provide a supportive refuge for the development of work. We also produce many of our own shows and events including puppet slams, variety shows, vaudevillian weirdness and various spectacles for the amusement of our patrons.
