The Freedom Tower? The West Side Stadium? New York architecture needs a swift kick in the ass.
With Boozy, Les Freres Corbusier finally puts the punk rock back into New York urban planning: Amidst a blaze of streaming media, ridiculous choreography, and dozens of live fornicating rabbits, famed French architect Le Corbusier inspires builder Robert Moses in his desperate battle to recreate New York.
Freemasons dance, FDR levitates, and Daniel Libeskind silently weeps. None shall be spared.

"Clever, slickly produced and consistently entertaining... An all-out attack on the senses... A delightfully good time."
-The New York Times
"A madcap, absurdist romp that makes Richard Foreman's productions look stodgy!"
-New York Post
"Overflows with inventiveness, sly humor and a rollicking spirit"
-New York Daily News
"Brecht by way of Monty Python... A whacked-out, punked up look at the history of urban planning in New York... Boozy has a grinning, absurdist bravura... Thought-provoking... A silly-smart kick..."
-Time Out New York
"Fearless... Hilarious... Equal parts rigor and ridiculousness..."
-New York Newsday
"Les Freres' improbable cocktail of history, ideas, and erudite jokes goes down fast and easy... Driven by director Alex Timbers' inventive whimsy, the group offers a tour de force of ironic pageantry, fueled by pox-on-your-houses political indignation and plenty of smartass humor..."
-The Village Voice
"Hilarious... A crazy quilt blend of fact and fiction..."
-The Associated Press
