TAMMY FAYE STARLITE
Tammy Faye Starlite, the fearless and much celebrated New York-based rock/cabaret/performance artist brings to Afterglow her portrayal of Nico, the Warhol-era siren, muse and tragicomic figure. Accompanied by Richard Feridun, Starlite eerily channels Nico, chanteuse from the Velvet Underground and beyond (i.e., the overground) featuring her better-known and lesser-known songs, which encompass the ominous and beautiful opacity of her Teutonic soul, her recollections (Rashomon-style) about the men who loved her: from Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, Jackson Brown, Iggy Pop (among others, many others), her musings on fate, nihilism, necromancy and the current state of the world, which is as protean as her flickering soul.
Jaw-dropping.. a serious comic creation intended to be so authentic that it might be mistaken for the real thing. Stephen Holden, The New York Times
The show mocks and honors its subject with loving regard.David Fricke, Rolling Stone
Remarkable and howlingly funny.. a funny, morbidly fascinating night of theater.Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
