Koenig wrote the play based on her personal experience editing Playgirl from 2000 to 2002. Robert W. McMaster directs. Opening night is Jan. 6.
A release the describes the play as such: “Meet Dori Richter, a nice Jewish girl from Long Island whose life changes when she answers an ad in the newspaper seeking a ‘writer/editor who must be comfortable with male nudity.’ Dirty Girl takes audiences on a wild, comedic ride from the offices of the fictional Loverboy magazine to steamy photo shoot locales as it tells the story of Dori's quest to find a woman who is actually turned on by the images in her magazine.”
The play, which stars Koenig, Corrie Beula, Bridget Harvey, Michael Littner and Jesse Teeters, began as Koenig's one-night-only solo show at Ars Nova entitled Centerfold.
The play is presented by Horse Trade, which runs the Kraine Theater, and Firecracker Productions.
The Kraine Theater is at 85 East 4th Street. For tickets, priced $18, call (212) 868-4444 or visit www.HorseTrade.info.
