The tale of a mom who writes erotica in order to support her family is the third play in the Off-Broadway Signature's 2004-05 season devoted to the works of Pulitzer Prize-winner Vogel.
Directed by Les Waters, Hot 'n' Throbbing concerns Charlene, played by Emery, who writes "erotic screenplays to support her troubled teenage son and daughter while trying to keep her estranged, obsessive husband away from the three of them."
Lisa Emery is a veteran of Off-Broadway's Dinner With Friends and Far East and Broadway's The Women, Present Laughter, Jackie, Burn This and Rumors.
Set design is by Mark Wendland, costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Robert Wierzel and sound design by Darron L. West.
The play is billed "as a highly theatrical, surprisingly funny, provocative and potent exploration of sex, power, and violence." Performances play Signature's home at Peter Norton Space (555 W. 42nd St.). The opening is March 28.
Signature's production of Vogel's The Baltimore Waltz continues to Jan. 9. The first production of the 2004-05 Season was Vogel's The Oldest Profession.
Vogel won the Pulitzer Prize for her play, How I Learned to Drive.
