News   A "Sexily Disturbing" Show Will Utilize Rap and Horror Off-Broadway Animal Parts will present Revenge of the Popinjay at Dixon Place in downtown New York. Created by Anthony Johnston, the experimental theatrical piece explores LGBT themes and blends original live rap music and horror.

Revenge of the Popinjay will begin performances April 1 and continue through April 25, with an official opening night slated for April 17. Here's how the "sexily disturbing" show is billed: "Someone is killing the heterosexuals! As dozens of brutal slayings engulf the city in panic, a young gay man rises to fame in underground rap clubs. Revenge of the Popinjay is an experimental rap horror show in which Anthony struggles to cope with the loss of his sister while uncovering a frightening link between himself, his lover, and an illusive gay rap star/serial killer targeting heterosexuals. Combining storytelling, stand-up, physical theatre, performance art, and original live rap music, Popinjay is a one-of-a-kind theatrical event."

Animal Parts is made up of Anthony Johnston and Nathan Schwartz, with original works staged at 59E59, Under St. Mark's and Dixon Place.
