The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show
Under the Tent @ the Old Stone House & Washington Park
THE BUFFALO NICKELS MEDICINE SHOW sings and picks its way through the on- and off-stage exploits of its itinerant company, as they pine for and plot against each other and the audience that gathers each evening around their traveling wagons. The cast of characters performing variously on stage in THE BUFFALO NICKELS MEDICINE SHOW include: “Leopold Finch”, shady purveyor of patent remedies, with a nose for Achilles heels; Finch’s horse “Mule”; “Mabel Morrow”, brassy, bewitching, intoxicated by a crowd; Mabel’s daughter “Bet”; and “Thomas” the rugged union organizer who plays his secrets close to the heart.
The Brooklyn based band, Buffalo Nickels is fronted by Mike Shapiro and Kate Prascher. For more about the band visit www.BuffaloNickelsBand.com
Performances are free and take place Under the Tent in Washington Park. No glass permitted. Snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine available for purchase.
