DanceNOW [NYC] is pleased to present One-Man Show, an hour-long musical created by John Heginbothom with music by Julia Meinwald and lyrics by Gordon Leary, as part of its Dancemopoltian series at Joe’s Pub.Here’s a snapshot: John wakes from a coma to find himself center stage at the legendary East Village cabaret, Joe’s Pub. His dying wish has been granted – He will finally star in his own one-man show. Confronted with just one hour to live, John dances and sings to the point of diminishing returns. Two caregivers and a disembodied frontal lobe-cum-pianist provide the entertainment. Expect Joseph Papp, Ginger Rogers, The Wooster Group, dissociative identity disorder, Nichols and May, Andy Warhol, Dance Dance Revolution, and the First Lady of the One-Man Show, Tony Award winner Elaine Stritch to all play a part. One-Man Show stars John Heginbotham and features a cast of thousands, including Aaron Mattocks, Daniel Pettrow and Elizabeth DeMent.
Thursday June 3 at 7pm, Friday June 4 at 7pm, Saturday June 5 at 9:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Buy your tickets here!
