Yet another reason I wish we lived in NYC: Jollyship the Whiz-Bang on stage now at Ars Nova, 511 W54th St.

Billed as a Pirate-Puppet-Rock Odyssey, the ship is sinking, the captain’s a drunk and the band is on the verge of mutiny. Braving treacherous seas and murderous waves on a quest for the wonders of Party Island, Captain Clamp and crew undertake a ribald and rum-soaked nautical journey.

CREATED BY NICK JONES WITH RAJA AZAR

DIRECTED BY SAM GOLD

The Band: Raja Azar, Steven Boyer, Keith Frederickson, Nick Jones, Daniel Kutcher, Julie Lake, Jesses Wallace.

Sets: Donyale Werle. Costumes: Emily Rebholz. Puppets: Paul Burn. Lights: Ben Stanton.

The New York Times calls it “loud and loose, but not sloppy” and hails its “demented brilliance.”
