    Synopsis: 

    Described as "Schoolhouse Rock meets the Ziegfeld Follies," The Greenwich Village Follies is high-spirited & deliciously raunchy, offering an overview of the Village's history in the form of an old-school musical revue. From Peter Stuyvesant to the Stonewall Girls, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire to NYU, this new musical revue brings Greenwich Village's storied 400-year history to life. The 18 songs include "Resist the Grid" (about the "grid protests" of 1811), "Splatter Me All Over" (a tribute to painter Jackson Pollock) & "Smoke Smoke (Hey, Man)," (a comic treatment of drug dealers in Washington Square Park).
