Conceived and directed by Jason Jacobs with dramaturg Jamee Freedus, Bald Diva! is described as the "Ionesco parody your mother warned you about." According to production notes, "Queer-Eyed boys get an absurdist makeover a la Eugene Ionesco in this tragic spectacle of la vie Chelsea, featuring sizzling firemen, probing detectives, saucy maids, steamroom escapades, provocative party games, low-rent musical numbers on fabulous cardboard sets, piping-hot celebrity dish, the latest fashion trends and beauty secrets, narrow escapes of reality, death-defying mental acrobatics and more Divas than you can shake your stick at!"
Heading the cast of the Theatre Askew production are Tim Cusack, Gerald Marsini, Matthew Pritchard, Terrence Michael McCrossan, Jeffrey James Keyes and Nathan Blew. Bald Diva!, which officially opens Feb. 14 and runs through March 6, features sets by Erik Flatmo, lights by Charles Foster and costumes by Dan Urlie.
