Rapscallion Theatre Collective proudly presents the world premiere of the all-american genderf*ck cabaret, a new play by Mariah MacCarthy. Krystal Banzon directs the limited engagement at the East Village’s UNDER St. Marks, March 25 – April 3, 2010.
In this intimately outrageous cabaret, eight gender stereotypes are plucked straight from pop culture: a Girly Girl, a Manly Man, a Nice Guy, a Gay Best Friend, a Slut, a Feminist Lesbian, and a Tomboy. Guided by an androgynous, omnipotent MC intent on their redemption, they embark on eight sexy, hilarious journeys from stereotypes to Human Beings. Along the way, hearts are broken, Pomeranians are purchased, the Pussies of America make their stand, and everyone does the “Single Ladies” dance. Biting yet compassionate, this epic ensemble piece skewers everything from feminism to sexting; from acquaintance rape to infidelity; from homophobia and assault, to loneliness and the bass-ackwards ways we seek affection--just to name a few. The sharp edges of caricature soften; connection replaces spectacle; and men, women, and none-of-the-aboves discover that in a polarized world of pink versus blue, everyone deserves Technicolor.
Rapscallion Theatre Collective’s the all-american genderf*ck cabaret opens Thursday, March 25 and continues Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm through April 4th. All performances take place at UNDER St. Marks, located at 94 St. Marks Place (between First Avenue and Avenue A – Basement Theater, not wheelchair accessible) New York, NY 10003. Take the F train to 2nd Avenue/Lower East Side, 6 to Astor Place, L to First Avenue.
