SEAWIFE tells the story of Percy, a young 19th Century first mate aboard the whaling vessel Requiem, sailing its last voyage of the Atlantic. When Percy and crewmates hunt and kill a mysterious Leviathan, its presence aboard drives the crew to a raving madness- and forces Percy to finally confront the horrific loss of his wife. Drawing from the great nautical literature of Melville, Coleridge and others, Moore’s script is a blend of modern story telling and themes with 1830’s tropes. Found object puppetry, ghosts, a Leviathan, and original music by actor-musicians/band The Lobbyists combine in a one-of-a-kind event that is part play, part concert, part immersive experience. SEAWIFE will have a workshop reading performance this Monday, September 23rd.

I'm excited to be doing my first ever NYFringe show (what took so long?) Performing in I AM A MOON. Zhu Yi’s lyrical play partially inspired by the life of legendary Japanese porn star Ai Iijima Everyone is a bright moon until you get closer and the craters appear. A closeted pop star, a secret fan, a body full of hickeys, a house without curtains… together weave a darkly humorous journey into the beauty of our ugly side. I AM A MOON explores the ways Eastern and Western cultures try to construct beauty and sexuality through shame: the shame of being over-weight, the shame of liberated sexuality, the shame of physical disability, the shame of physical scars, the shame of being a victim of sexual harassment, and the shame of aging. The Lynn Redgrave Theater (# Venue 14) Address: 45 Bleecker Street (at Lafayette Street, the home of Culture Project), New York, NY10012 Aug 9 (FRI) @ 5pm Aug 12 (MON) @ 4:30pm Aug 14 (WED) @ 5:45pm Aug 15 (THU) @ 9:30pm Aug 16 (FRI) @ 7pm Tickets: $15- $18.

Seth is set to star in Ed Sylvanus Iskandar's follow up to last season's hit THESE SEVEN SICKNESSES...

The Flea theater's RESTORATION COMEDY is a bawdy, sexy romp through a world that is part 1700's London, part Madonna music video. Pulitzer Prize finalist Amy Freed's script is a brilliant modern revitalization of an old forgotten form, which will surround you with full on dance numbers, music by The Scissor Sisters, blacklight burlesque, variety acts and an endless punchbowl... The ultimate holiday party.

Seth Moore stars as Ned Worthy, a rake-in-reform, coming to grips with his deepening love for his dearest friend's wife as he tries to leave a life of debauchery, in a world that swears by it.

Previews begin November 23, at the Flea Theater in TriBeCa.

The first 20 minutes of GHOSTS IN THE TAPESTRY, Seth's epic radiotheater piece, will be released as a sneak peak in November. Stay tuned...

The show now has a weekly following of fans, great bands signing up to perform and a snazzy new sponsor (Sixpoint Brewery). Seth’s show, The Connectors, which he co-wrote with the righteous Donaldo Prescod after Musa Bacon passed the torch, is to this day the juggernaut of the Show, holding the current record for the length of it’s run. The team recently killed the show (and every single character on it) to explore other ideas. The response was tremendous, and many tearful messages were posted on the voting ballots…

#Serials@theflea plays every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 11pm. FREE BEER with your ticket! Runs through August. For more info, go to:flea

Seth is also working on a brand new project at the Flea, currently titled Natural Selection, an episodic series where five teams of actors/writers/directors/artists each devise their own show which will run weekly at the theater, unless the audience votes it to be taken off the bill. It’ll be a late-night extravaganza (all performances happening waaay after your curfew) of raunchy good times, cheap beer, live music, and wild new theater ranging from campy and perverse to thought-provoking to outrageous, funny or even… horrifying.
