Please forgive these blurry rehearsal screenshots, but I hope you will venture out for an upcoming performance. The premiere of my new piece, "For Public Consumption," is this coming Friday, June 10 at 7:30pm at Streb Lab for Acton Mechanics as part of their Fridays at SLAM series. 51 N. 1st St. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Tickets are $15. Link to purchase in comments.

This piece is stylistically different from much of my other work. It's simultaneously a cabaret-style piece and a piece that pokes fun at that style of entertainment in the wake of COVID-19. It's the last in my series of pandemic-themed pieces. You can look forward to hearing Nirvana: "I feel stupid and contagious. Here we are now. Entertain us."
