2nd NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix
From Performance Space 122
The same people who brought the smashing success NOTES!!! (their incredibly dramatic parodied reading of Notes on a Scandal) returns with SWAN!!! (their even more incredibly dramatic parodied reading of this years dance away smash: Black Swan).
Nina (Jenn Harris) is freaking out. She is freaking out because she really wants to play the Swan Queen in the new production of Swan Lake. She is also freaking out because she is crazy. And so is her mother (Randy Harrison). And so is the choreographer (Christian Coulson) she works under, and we mean works under. And so is the former prima ballerina Winona Ryder, we mean Beth (Matthew Wilkas).
The pressure is a lot and she finds a little release, and we mean release, when she meets hot new bad ballet girl in town, Lily (Jack Ferver). However she gets a little more than nervous when it seems Lily may want her part. Things boil up and over and there is self-mutilation and violence towards MOM and cunnilingus and jetés.
The show is currently SOLD OUT.
