We had the opportunity to see 'The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told!' this past weekend and it was a ton of fun! The show is a very interactive, improvised, Pirate Musical- with lots of audience participation. The Snapple Theater is a great setting which really allows you to be up close with the actors. There isn't a bad seat in the house!

The show starts with the pirates rushing through the crowd high-fiving and chatting with audience members on their way in. This sets the tone for the whole performance-- you really feel like you are part of the crew! The show is full of improv, as the audience fills in the blanks for the story as it goes along. And the pirates have to make the story come alive-- in song!
My kids were thrilled when they were chosen to name the captain of the ship (Captain Scurvy), and laughed out loud when someone else decided the pirate ship would be made of cotton candy. The audience had a lot of fun with the details, and the crew did a great job creating a story around them. You would never know this story hadn't been told before! This show is unique and funny, and great for kids of all ages. My boys want to go back and see the show again- because they know next time it will be totally different!
The crew posed for fun pictures at the end and were great with all of the kids in the audience. It was an excellent family experience.... a wonderful way to spend our Saturday morning!

It’s Unanimous Critical Acclaim for NYC’s Beloved Pirates!
THE GREATEST PIRATE STORY NEVER TOLD!
THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES WITH PERFORMANCES EVERY SATURDAY at 11AM
(New York, NY) – It’s unanimous! The critical reviews of off-Broadway’s THE GREATEST PIRATE STORY NEVER TOLD! are raves and the hit musical continues it’s open run at the Snapple Theater Center every Saturday at 11:00AM. Rick Leidenfrost-Wilson directs the madcap musical adventure that the New York Times says provides “more laughs than there are bones in Davey Jones’s locker.”www.greatestpiratestory.com
THE GREATEST PIRATE STORY NEVER TOLD! is a never-before-seen, side-splitting combination of short-form improvisation set within a good, old-fashioned musical comedy, and follows Captain Henry Martin and his misfit pirate crew, who have been flung in to the future by a befuddled sea witch. Now their only chance of returning home is performing the greatest pirate epic ever seen on stage! But with their script torn asunder, these pirates-turned-players are forced to improvise their show as it unfolds, based upon the audience’s suggestions.
Performances of THE GREATEST PIRATE STORY NEVER TOLD! are on Saturdays at 11:00AM.
Tickets for THE GREATEST PIRATE STORY NEVER TOLD! are $39 - $65 and can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling the Snapple Theater Center Box Office at 212-921-7862. The Snapple Theater Center is located at 1627 Broadway at 50th St. (210 West 50th St.).
