Ticket-holders for the full, ten-hour marathon performance of the Nature Theater of Oklahoma’s Life and Times: Episodes 1-4, which takes place at select times on Saturdays and Sundays during its run from January 16 to February 2 at the Public Theater, can take comfort in the fact that they will be fed some good snacks. While tickets can be purchased for the show’s food-free “episodes,” those who settle in for the sprawling ten-hour performance of the Soho Rep-produced show will be treated first to knishes and fully loaded hot dogs from Katz’s, and then to brownies, which are baked by cast member Kristin Worrall and are garnished with vanilla sea salt. Finally, the audience will be given cups of hot chocolate from Velselka on their way out of the theater. [Public Theater]
