Tales From The Flip-Side Comes to The Centennial Black Box Theater August 15th
Well-known actor, singer, and magician John Pyka is proud to announce an ongoing partnership with the Metro Arts Center to bring his brand new mostly one-man show Tales From The Flip-Side to the Centennial Black Box Theater on August 15th, 2015.
“I’m very excited about this project,” says John Pyka, who is most well known as his signature character, the 1940’s zoot-suited hipster “Big Daddy Cool” Johnny Dellarocca. “It’s been nearly two years since BDC has been seen on a regular basis in Nashville, so it is fun to be able to bring him home for this new monthly series.” Previously John has been seen locally as “Big Daddy Cool” in Music City Magic and The Magic Cabaret.
“This project is different” added Pyka. “Not only will I be performing my award winning magic, I’ll be performing performance pieces pulled from my upcoming book of the same name published by Pro Se Press!” Audiences will get to meet Titanic Thompson, Al Capone, Jack Dempsey, Tahloola Jones, and many more larger than life characters during the 90 minute show. “Don’t call it a magic show. It’s a magical time-travel adventure.”
Tales From The Flip-Side debuts at the Centennial Black Box Theater on Saturday August 15th at 7 PM and will be presented monthly on the 3rd Saturday of every month. “It will be a little bit different show every month too” added Pyka. “New stories and at least one guest performer every month will make this a show that is never the same show twice!”
For the debut performance, general admission tickets are a special “Pay What You Can” rate ($5 suggested minimum). The show is intended for grown-up audiences but families are welcome. Seating is limited to 56 seats but can be reserved for $5 each by visiting johnpykaproductions.ticketleap.com/flipsidetales.
Pyka is the host of Comixtravaganza which can be seen right here on Graphic Policy on Wednesdays.
