Jeanna Philips and Scout Durwood Star in THE NAKED SIDE OF GRACE 2/29-3/04
IRT presents THE NAKED SIDE OF GRACE: THE FINAL CONCERT of GRACE FULLEST & VIOLET TENDENCIES February 29-March 4 at 7:30pm(Wednesday and Thursday) or 8pm(Friday and Saturday).
This show is about two burlesque artists, Grace Fullest (Jeanna Phillips), who has a penchant for pontificating about Madonna and cultural decline while scantily clad in just a few shredded shopping bags, and her significantly less angsty girlfriend Violet Tendencies (Scout Durwood), who hopes to inspire everyone to leave a trail of glitter wherever they go. Together they road trip across the American South and organize burlesque workshops at every stop in the slightly misguided hope that burlesque can save the nation—and their failing relationship. Soon Grace goes missing and foul play is suspected. The play weaves original alt-country music, video and burlesque into its tale about living in Barack Obama’s America, facing the past and twirling on down the road.
It was written by Lucile Baker Scott and features music by Mike Milazzo, Monica Rodriguez and Scout Durwood, the direction of Stella Powell-Jones and the producorial genius of Jesse Cameron Alick.
All tickets are $18 and may be purchased here.
