BY THE VILLAGE SUN | You don’t have to have any hesitancy about Theater for the New City’s new Street Theater production about the COVID crisis. It’s a booster shot of topical entertainment that you don’t want to miss.
The rip-roaring original musical — book, lyrics and direction by Crystal Field — tells the story of a young woman studying to be a nurse who, in order to pay for tuition and books, takes a job in a nursing home during the COVID health crisis.
Free performances are currently touring parks, playgrounds and closed-off streets throughout the five boroughs — from Coney Island to Staten Island to Central Park — through Sept. 12.
You can catch “Critical Care, or Rehearsals for a Nurse” in Washington Square Park on Sat., Aug. 21, at 2 p.m.; outside Theater for the New City, at E. 10th St. and First Ave., on Sat., Sept. 4, at 2 p.m.; and at Tompkins Square Park, at Seventh St. and Avenue A, on Sun., Sept. 12, at 2 p.m.
