SOLD OUT! America's Next Top
SOLD OUT! Comic and actor, Julie Novak, debuted her bold, hilarious, and ground-breaking one-woman-show, "America's Next Top: One Top's Hysterical Take on Life, Love, Tools and Boxes" during this year's Women's Week in Provincetown.  "I laughed until I cried," said one audience member after the show. "I've never felt so energized by any other performer I've seen in Provincetown and I've seen them all," said a Women's Week veteran.

The show, running one-night-only on November 22nd at the Rosendale Theatre, will be directed by Starling Productions/TMI Project founder and executive director, Eva Tenuto, who also co-wrote the show.

"America's Next Top" offers keen insight into gender variance, the politics of queerness and everything in between. "The show is a collection of observations and true stories based on my life growing up as someone who found herself not really having a defined position on the gender spectrum," says Novak.

Included are moving stories about such things as coming out and experiencing homophobia and discrimination, all told with a twist of humor unique to Novak. "America's Next Top" showcases not only Novak's strong comedic talents, but also her skills as a singer, impersonator and all around dynamic performer.

"She is a bold and fearless performer," says Tenuto. "What I love most about her work is its ability to give a strong, powerful voice to an often voiceless community. Her ability to charm the audience and get them laughing, makes the sometimes taboo content accessible for everyone."

Audiences are sure to be won over. Novak has been touching and entertaining audiences for years, with her signature brand of humor. In addition to performing in and around the New York Tri-State area for the past 15 years, she studied comedy and improv at Second City in Chicago, and has performed stand-up in Chicago, New York, and Washington DC. She recently participated, along with such comedians as Lewis Black and Kathy Griffin, in the Serious Laughs Comedy Festival in Kingston, NY and headlined Queerstock, a Woodstock, NY gay and lesbian cabaret.

Here's what some people in the know are saying:

"Julie's an amazing, dynamic performer and community leader." - Chris Wells, founder of the Obie-winning Secret City.

"Novak has a divine ability to make every person feel at ease and alive. Her rare sense of humor collapses false barriers, opens the hardest hearts, and even makes my grandma feel intoxicated. Seeing her perform should be on your bucket list" -Jacinta Bunnell, author of the feminist coloring book, Girls Are Not Chicks

"Novak's progressive sense of social justice informs her work. Often it is fearless." - Jay Blotcher, veteran journalist, and community activist, and former media committee chairman for the founding chapter of ACT UP
