Fate, Fury, and Musical Theatre, written by and starring actress Liz Wasser, is offered Dec. 5 at 54 Below.



Directed by Amanda Thompson, the 11:30 PM show also features Kennedy Kanagawa, Michael Hull and Matthew Franzetti.

In Fate, Fury, and Musical Theatre, according to press notes, "a young actress, frustrated with the static state of her life and career, drives from her house on Long Island until she can't drive anymore. At the beach, the Three Fates of ancient mythology, androgynous and fabulous, wash onto the shore like Venus on the foam. Taking her under their collective wing, they lead the girl on a journey of storytelling, self­discovery and showtunes."

The evening features accompanists Alicia Varcoe and Courtney Romano; Laura Hirschberg stage manages.

Fate, Fury, and Musical Theatre was mounted as part of the New York Frigid Festival 2011, where it was extended as part of the Frigid Hangover Series and subsequently produced by Horse Trade Theatre Co.
