One More Show – Monday – 12/16/2019 Soho Playhouse
Preeminent American storyteller Dandy Darkly makes his Off-Broadway debut with his political, hysterical hour of sugary sweet satire. Dandy Darkly’s latest is a Georgia ghost story told by the survivors of that tragic Halloween night — from the little boy chased by the phantoms that haunt her as an adult to the cruel Colonel buried in his bunker, tinkering with his toys.
On a warm summer Sunday afternoon I spoke with Adrienne Truscott in her Brooklyn apartment and listened to her insightful commentary on her upcoming performance that she was preparing for. This show is coming up at Joe’s Pub in New York City. Hear what she has to say about this somewhat controversial show in the following interview!
“It’s so exhilarating to see the ugliness of rape discourse taken on, and bested, not with humourlessness or censoriousness, but with firecracker wit, sophistication, and luminous humanity.” – The Guardian
“Tammy Faye Starlite went all the way: impersonating Marianne Faithfull, rock musics fallen woman, with an uncanny accuracy. Her simulation of Ms. Faithfull’s vocal style and combustible blend of arrogance and scabrous sarcasm only begins to tell the story.”
Stephen Holden – New York Times

“Now, as Marianne Faithfull, British pops queen of survival, Starlite resurrects 1979s Broken English as a thoroughly modern tale of adventure, abyss and hard-won vengeance one of the most brutally frank albums of its time, made flesh again, in poignant lethally honest character.”
David Fricke/Rolling Stone

Following a month of sold-out performances in March of her portrayal of Marianne Faithfull, pegged to the 40th anniversary of the landmark Broken English album, Tammy Faye Starlite has announced a new production titled “Why’d Ya Do It?: Tammy Faye Starlite Performs Marianne Faithfull’s Broken English at Pangea” this fall. The show, directed by Michael Schiralli whose credits include Varla Jean Mermanand the Mushroom Heads, Scraping the Bottom: The Most Offensive Songs of Jackie Hoffman and Tammy Faye’s own acclaimed Nico Underground, launches Wednesday, September 25 and then plays every Thursday in October with the run concluding on Halloween. Two preview performances are set for Thursday, September 12 and September 19.
Tammy Faye originally performed Broken English at Lincoln Center and brought it to Joe’s Pub and The Metropolitan Room; later she performed Marianne Faithful: Exposed at Joes Pub and McCabes in Los Angeles. Thereafter, she took Cabaret Marianne on the road to Provincetown, Chicago and St. Louis.

‘now my hand is ready for my heart: intimate histories’ is the newest work from Nicky Paraiso, an award-winning 40-year veteran of the New York City performance community. In a deep exploration of an artist’s life, Paraiso investigates aging, identity, sexuality, class and race. Directed by MacArthur Fellow John Jesurun, this world premiere is a multi-disciplinary celebration of an artistic community as it grows older and continues to make work, both individually and with each other. Paraiso is joined by choreographer / dancers Irene Hultman, Jon Kinzel, Vicky Shick, and Paz Tanjuaquio in performance and as collaborators.‘
