“Theatre Askew is queer in the best sense of the word: self-consciously outside of the mainstream, looking in with intelligence and wit.”
– Julia Wallace, The Village Voice

Queer duckling Theatre Askew joins forces with Performance Space 122 to present Avant-Garde-Arama Goes Askew. Drawing from across the rainbow spectrum of LGBT culture, the evening features dance inspired by Margaret Cho and the notorious Alphabet City after-hours club Save the Robots, trannie dominatrices, and severed heads. Hosted by Downtown legends Bianca Leigh and the Ridiculous Theatrical Company’s Everett Quinton, it’s guaranteed to get your sap flowing this May.
Hosted by Bianca Leigh and Everett Quinton. With performances by Bianca Leigh, Karen Grenke, Theatre Askew company members, Irene Ruiz-Riveros and BLISS dance-theatre, GERALDCASELDANCE, Isengart, and The Din (Matthew Pritchard and Isam Rum). Featuring new writing by Polly Frost, Stan Richardson, and OBIE-winner William M. Hoffman. Installation by Peter Cramer & Co of Le Petit Versailles community garden. Queer experimental film & video presented by Stephen Kent Jusick, executive director of the MIX Festival

Theatre Askew’s inaugural production, Bald Diva! earned a GLAAD Media Award nomination for Outstanding Off-Off Broadway Play. Their follow-up show was the hit serial I, Claudius Live. Last year they received their second GLAAD nomination for the world premiere of Jason Schafer’s i google myself. They were named 2007 People of the Year by nytheatre.com. Their most recent production was the world premiere of William M. Hoffman and Anthony Holland’s Cornbury: The Queen’s Governor.
