Originally scheduled to open Off-Broadway Feb. 19, Artfuckers - presented by Diane Passage and Victor Syrmis - will now officially open at the DR2 Theatre Feb. 26 at 7 PM. Following a sold-out acclaimed run at the Theater for the New City last season, Domitrovich's work made the leap Off-Broadway Feb. 8.
Artfuckers, according to press notes, "follows a group of hot, creative twentysomethings who are collaborating on their friend's debut showing at New York Fashion week. Using sex, status and New York City street smarts, the characters live in a world where everything is allowed and nothing is questioned… as long as it's in the name of art."
Directed by Eduardo Machado, the cast comprises Nicole LaLiberte (as Bella, a downtown "It-girl" and the daughter of a famous artist), Will Janowitz (as Owen, Bella's boyfriend, an obsessive contemporary art-star), Asher Grodman (as Trevor, a hot, newly successful electronic musician and Bella's latest conquest), Jessica Kaye (as Bella's sister Maggie, a tough as nails publicist) and Tuomas Hiltunen (as Max, a wunderkind designer whose fashion show brings the group together).
The design team includes Maruti Evans (set design), Margaret Moy (costume design), Ken Hypes (sound design) and Chris Kateff (video design).
Domitrovich is the author of Dirtfag, Caregivers and Goatgod, all of which were presented in Sticky@Galapagos in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He is co-author of Machado's food memoir, "Tastes Like Cuba: An Exile's Hunger for Home." Show times are Tuesday-Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 5 and 9 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
Tickets, priced $25-$65, are available by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com. The DR2 Theatre is located in Manhattan at 103 East 15th Street.
