A cast of performers and writers — including Utkarsh Ambudkar, Bart Atsin, Danielle Levanas, Vella Lovell, Preston Martin, Grace McLean, Chloe Ramras, David Skeist and Emma Tattenbaum-Fine — created the work, which is described as "a wild and edgy theatre piece consisting of songs, scenes and monologues which portray the absurdity of our world as it is now as well as the scandalous and outrageously stupid behavior of the people who inhabit it."
After previous runs at Joe's Pub and participation in the Culture Project's IMPACT Political Theater Festival and the Women CenterStage Festival, the latest incarnation of Political Subversities features new and up-to-date material.
Elizabeth Swados directs the evening with musical direction by Kris Kukul.
Elizabeth Swados earned Tony nominations for her work as composer, lyricist, book writer, choreographer and director of Runways. She has penned book, music and lyrics for Alice in Concert with Meryl Streep, as well as Lullabye and Goodnight, The Trilogy, Nightclub Cantata and Groundhog.
Tickets for Political Subversities at Joe's Pub on Oct. 25 at 11:30 PM are available by calling (212) 967-7555 or by visiting www.joespub.com.
