Love is a Strange Bird

There’s a certain buzz around town right now … a buzz about a few feathered friends. Two chinstrap penguins are about to take center stage on July 15 when The Hub hatches the world premiere of Marc Acito’s Birds of a Feather.

This new play recounts the story of Roy and Silo, the two Central Park Zoo chinstrap penguins who partnered, adopted an egg, hatched and raised a chick together. Roy and Silo are no strangers to the spotlight. In 2005, they were the subject of a widely contested children’s book, And Tango Makes Three, by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson. The book, temporarily pulled from school bookshelves in Loudoun County, became one of the most banned books in the US. In Birds of a Feather, all of the characters are played by actors, including the bird-brained humans.

Birds of a Feather playwright, Marc Acito, is the author of the comic novels How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship and Musical Theater (Editors’ Choice – The New York Times ) and its sequel Attack of the Theater People and performs singing commentaries on NPR’s All Things Considered.

The press is already talking about the show! Joel Markowitz named The Hub’s Birds of a Feather a Top Pick on, and David Segal wrote a great story about the show in the Fairfax Connection newspaper.

Demand for this show will likely be high. Buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment at the door! Click here to visit the box office.
