4Play

By Ben Wolfson11th Grade, Hunter College High School Okay, so you’ve had a long day and you have too much homework. Or maybe you’re sick and tired of having nightmares about college applications. Or perhaps you’re just looking for something to do… If this even vaguely describes you, then 4Play, performed by The Flying Karamazov Brothers, is just what the doctor ordered. It’s got everything needed to cheer you up and distract you from your troubles. The show centers on juggling, but not the boring meh-he’s-a-street-performer-of-reasonable-skill type juggling. Rather, it’s juggling that’ll have you sitting on the edge of your seat, fearing for the lives of the Brothers as they perform difficult routines — including juggling with their eyes closed. Maybe you’re not a juggling fan and you’re contemplating putting down this article. Please don’t! Amidst their juggling extravaganzas, the Brothers work in funny skits and jokes. Furthermore, hecklers are welcome to scream out their remarks. If there happens to be some free time on your schedule, don’t dally and procrastinate. Instead, let more qualified professionals do it for you, in a doubtlessly more entertaining way. TICKETS: $20 • Minetta Lane, 18 Minetta Lane, www.4playtheshow.com
