High-Kicking High-Rises - New York Times:
IN a city driven mad by real estate, it was probably just a matter of time until a musical came along starring a 28-story high-rise.
The musical in question, a sardonic poke at New York’s recent building boom called “Little Building,” recently ended a run of sold-out performances at the Galapagos Art Space in Williamsburg, and its creator is hoping that before long it will have a new life on stages elsewhere in the city.
The show’s lead role is its title character, an “intimate 28-story Eden” in Midtown complete with gym, day care center and eight coffee shops. The character, who makes her first appearance in the show-stopping opening number, is brought to life by the actress Tamar Schoenberg, a wide-eyed mezzo-soprano whose face sticks out of a hole in her silvery cardboard costume right around the 26th floor.
