New York, NY – The Faraways, a one-of-a-kind live theatrical musical show, will launch its national tour on October 9th and bring a new entertainment experience to mall-goers across the country. The captivating show will be performed in a unique mobile “pop-up” theater that seats 200 and is a perfect addition to the growing live entertainment offerings at malls across the country. The family-friendly show runs approximately one hour and fifteen minutes and has 6 cast members. Shows are every Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the run dates. From the moment a ticket is purchased, the entertainment begins. Patrons are ushered through a zany pre-show “ride” that establishes the interactivity between cast and audience.
The show is created, written and directed by film producer and entrepreneur Marcus Ticotin. Music and lyrics are by Sahaj Ticotin (writer, performer and producer of over 100 songs including top 10 hits; founder and lead vocalist/writer/producer of the band RA on Universal Republic Records) with additional music and lyrics contributed by Marcus. Choreography is by Nancy Ticotin (featured on Broadway in Damn Yankees, Jerome’s Robbins Broadway, In The Heights, West Side Story and was an original member of Ballet Hispanico of NY.)
When the show begins the audience will learn that The Faraways are not of this world. They are visitors, in human disguise, from another dimension, looking to find a new, better home and hoping not to be dragged back. And, while they figure this out, their new best friend asks them to come to the mall where he works and tell everyone about what they’ve experienced, so far. In a burst of song, dance, comedy, circus-like acts and audience participation, they invite the audience on their journey and relate their experiences in our world.
Unlike anything seen at malls in the past, The Faraways take their audience into a place beyond their imagination. It is a sensory overload of high-octane music, dance, laughter, and physical feats as The Faraways search for a place to call home. The journey starts with the explosive opening number, “Now It Begins,” where The Faraways sing “we’re gonna take you on a ride but we can’t do it all alone”, as they break into exciting, synchronized hip-hop dance. Their show moves right into a juggling number where they attempt to defy gravity, followed by a driving reggaeton rap about the wonders of human food, a country line dancing number with a Broadway flair and the wonders and thrills of great voices, twirling and whistling ropes, mesmerizing rhythmic gymnastics and non-stop comic audience interactivity. Audience members will find themselves participating in singing, dancing and laughter! The Faraways are a different and fun kind of live family fun show with something to entertain all ages.
