Mary McCool & THIS INFO WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Nurture that revolutionary soul with dance and new connections. Get Lucid! And The Philadelphia Citizen present the Election Hangover Party at Ruba Club on the lucky date of Friday 11/11/16. Make a wish for Philadelphia and let’s look forward together, leaving the charades and shenanigans of the election behind. Local theatre artist Mary McCool makes a shadowy appearance with her character from THIS INFO WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
A joyful realization of fantasy. This project plays in the edges of “performance art.” Direct address, “vaudeville,” audience-to-audience and actor-to-audience tropes are explored. Debilitating sadness through absurdity and hilarity, is a curiosity.
