The Bowery Boys: Ghost Stories of Old New York City Live Halloween Spooktacular
OCTOBER 2018, JOE’S PUB
The award-winning Bowery Boys: New York City History podcast, hosted by Tom Meyers and Greg Young, has brought the story of New York City to life for over 11 years, focusing on the controversial figures, the breathtaking moments and the extraordinary landmarks that have made this city the greatest in the world.
But they have also brought the dead to life in their annual Halloween ghost story podcasts! Every October, Tom and Greg conjure the spooky folklore and mysterious urban legends that have famously kept New Yorkers awake at night – from haunted mansions to possessed parks. And now, for the first time, they will retell the greatest of these haunted tales in a live show.
For this special evening, the Bowery Boys will invite the ghosts of New York City into Joe’s Pub! This evening of creepy (and occasionally campy) campfire tales will come to life with music by acclaimed music director and composer Andrew Austin, wacky sound effects, a litany of bad puns and even a special guest or two. Which famous spirits will Tom and Greg conjure up to join them on stage? Is that the sound of a wooden leg, scraping across the floor?
