Ars Nova Extends EAGER TO LOSE Through 11/9
Ars Nova has announced an additional week for the world premiere production of Eager to Lose. Originally set to play a limited Off-Broadway engagement through November 2, Eager to Lose will now play through Saturday, November 9. Previews began October 9. The show celebrated its Official Opening Night at Ars Nova (511 West 54th Street) on Tuesday, October 22.
Welcome to the legendary Tim Tam Room, where the music sizzles, champagne flows, and dancing beauties tempt and tease. When Tansy, the club's crown jewel, announces her imminent departure, the club's MC is left holding his heart in his hands. Exuberant hijinks and salacious striptease collide as this night of classic burlesque unspools into a sequin-drenched, raucous farce.
Eager to Lose was developed through Ars Nova's ANT Fest and Project Residency programs.
Eager to Lose is co-created by writer Matthew-Lee Erlbach, co-directors Wes Grantom and Portia Krieger, and burlesque sensation Tansy, who appears in the production with John Behlmann, Richard Saudek, Emily Walton and Stacey Yen. Eager to Lose includes Choreography by Tansy, Music Direction by Cody Owen Stine, Scenic Design by Mark Erbaugh, Costume Design by Tilly Grimes, Lighting Design by Brian Tovar, and Sound Design by Josh Millican.
This production also features performances by Ben Arons (drums), Chris Bastian (bass), Danny Jonokuchi (trumpet) and Cody Owen Stine (piano).
