NOVEMBER 2 LINEUP
Anomie Fatale: I am Great Neck
I’m a singer/songwriter/disability rights advocate that recently did a feature for FringeArts. In the show I told a lot about my personal story, medical history, how I went from a 4.0 biochemistry student to a burlesque/sideshow performer using comedy and my music to tell the story.
Lightning Rod Special/Strange Attractor: Sans Everything
Sans Everything follows a ship of elite space explorers as they are forced to perform As You Like It for the entertainment of a hostile extraterrestrial presence.

Sans Everything is a co-production between Lightning Rod Special and Strange Attractor Theatre Company and will be developed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Providence, and Boston.
