UNMASKED: LARGER-THAN-LIFE CHARACTERS & THE REGULAR JOES WHO INHABIT THEM – The Lady Aye, Mistress B, and more!
Nov 25, 2013 @ 8:00 pm| $8
Presented by veteran New York performers The Lady Aye and Mistress B, “Unmasked: Larger-Than-Life Characters & the Regular Joes Who Inhabit Them” combines variety arts with storytelling to give audiences rare and unique glimpse at the people behind the performers.
The show’s first act is performed by circus, sideshow, drag, and burlesque performers “in character,” the second act welcomes the performers back to stage for stripped-down storytelling free of makeup, costume, or props.
Program made possible, in part, by support from Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc. and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs as a recipient of the First of May Award.
