News From Across the River: Off-Bway play Celebrates Its 100th Performance

On Friday, November 24th, PUFFS (or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic) will celebrate its 100th performance Off-Broadway at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street – between 8th and 9th Avenues.) Cast photo below.

When producers, David Carpenter and John Arthur Pinckard, established Tilted Windmills Theatricals, they did so to re-energize and re-vitalize both the creative and financial possibilities of the American Theatre. They produce at the intersection of the Performing Arts and the Popular Arts; a lucrative and now very busy corner.

Previously, on September 29th, they celebrated the First Anniversary of the universally acclaimed comedy’s journey to National presence.

Currently being heralded as one of the funniest productions on sale in America, PUFFS began at the Elektra Theater to wild acclaim from an electrified avalanche of New York’s critics.
When the Elektra began a massive renovation, the venerable Shubert Organization offered Tilted Windmills Theatricals a theatre at New World Stages, their Off-Broadway theatre complex on 50th Street.
It was a sold-out hit – all over again -  within weeks.
PUFFS’ inexhaustible cast plays 53 of the most certifiably off-balance and uproariously entertaining characters from this universe and others.

There is no intermission.   No one wants one. What the audiences want is to come again.  The repeat business is astounding.

20,000 people squeezed into the previous run.  The current Box Office staff at New World Stages wasn’t prepared for the onslaught.

The theatre’s capacity is 199 seats. There are 400,000,000 wizard enthusiasts alive today.

Do that Math!  The men at Tilted Windmills Theatricals have.

The Off-Broadway Playing Schedule:
Mondays at 8:00pm
Thursdays at 8:00pm
Fridays at 8:00pm
Saturdays at 2:00pm
