You have only two more chances to see “Noodles Astray,” and I’d reccomend making sure to grab one of them.
“Noodles Astray” is the latest play by Andi Stover, the creative mind who pulled off (in association with LiveFeedNYC) site-specific pieces like “The Magical History Tour” on a clipper ship in New York Harbor and “Julie S. Caesar and The Real Housewives of Trevi” at the Ace Hotel, both in 2012.
Stover’s latest work is a scrappy cautionary tale of creativity, control, and the modern human condition (think unaffordable rents intersecting with the drive to make it) set in New York City. Its DIY tone is comical, but its subject matter and treatment raise serious questions about family and ambition in a media-obsessed society.
Pay close attention from the moment the bell rings to signal the start. There’s a delightful spoken-word overture that consisof a litany of lost New York, kicking off with CBGB.

The piece, directed as well as written by Stover, features six actors along with puppets created by Daniel Patrick Fay and a theme song written by Christian Gibbs.
