Cuts: An Uplifting Musical features book and lyrics by Caryl Avery. The new work is described as such: "As societal forces and our own insecurities push us toward a never-ending quest for physical perfection, along comes Cuts: An Uplifting Musical to parody today's makeover madness and help us laugh at our vanity. This cutting-edge revue spares no cosmetic procedure and no musical genre in its scalpel-sharp dissection of our national obsession with looking young and beautiful."
The York Theatre Company at Saint Peter's is located at 54th Street, just east of Lexington Avenue. For more information visit www.yorktheatre.org.
