momgrab: (50/50) Old School Animation
SHOW JUST ADDED: Friday, Oct. 7 at 8 pm
If a show is sold out, there will definitely be tickets available at the door, although they may involve floor seating. We will be starting a wait list at 7:30 pm.
momgrab (a collaboration between theater artists Peter Mills Weiss and Julia Mounsey) presents a simple story, written for a single voice, about a harrowing night out in Brooklyn. Drawing from the equally American traditions of the charming, male raconteur and the hyperglamorous, bizarrely asexual teen drama, [;;;;;50/50];;;;; old school animation explores female friendship, the restlessness of youth and the romanticization of the brutalized female body.
Conceived by Julia Mounsey, written and directed by momgrab, with lighting design by Mike McGee.
