Ask me if I scare
Music, art, theater, fortune-telling, assorted other spookiness and a contest for the best costume in the East Village will be part of the Theater for the New City's 25th annual Village Halloween Costume Ball.
By ROBIN EISGRAU
So you want to do something fun and festive this Halloween but you're too
old for trick or treating, your apartment is way too small for a party and
you're not thrilled with the idea of standing for hours and craning your
neck to get a glimpse of the parade along Sixth Avenue? You've got a costume
ready and you think it's pretty cool, but where to go?
A solution will be
waiting at the Theater For The New City 's 25th Annual Village Halloween
Costume Ball, where there'll be a plethora of music, performance, food and
excitement. Happening both outside the theater space and within the TNC's
spacious environs, the merriment begins at 4 o'clock outdoors where there'll be
bluegrass and jazz bands, fire eaters, jugglers, storyweavers and stilt
