The spirit of a 9-year-old Portuguese girl haunts a city playground in Judith Thompson's vicious tragi-comedy, Lion in the Streets, playing Feb. 25-March 7 at NYC's NADA 45.
Directed by Amy Gordon, the play follows the girl, who was mauled by a lion 17 years earlier and now searches for her attacker. Along the way, she encounters scenes of sex, violence, and everything in between, and discovers that humor leads to hope of survival.
Lion is a co-production between NADA 45 and Crossbreeding Productions, a two-year-old company with an emphasis on physical theatre.
Leah Bosworth, Rachel Kramer, Michelle Matlock, Stephen Rondel, Andy Uhlenhopp, and Adelaida Vega are in the cast.
Performances run at NADA 45, 445 W. 45th St., 4th fl., Thursday through Sunday at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $12. For reservations, call (212) 674-4538. -- By Diane Snyder
