BROOKLYN NO NAMES Comes to The SheNYC 2018 Summer Theater Festival

Sometimes getting what you need means you have to lie. Sometimes you have to hand your email address to an insta-famous dickbag or date a cokehead production designer. A filmmaker and a musician, who just moved to Brooklyn post-grad with no professional credits, desperately search for artistic success in a series of awkward, messed-up encounters.

Melanie Notinger will be playing Izzy and Marisa Jones will be playing Elliot in this summer's production. Notinger is a writer, performer and filmmaker from Texas. Her short film, Choke Artist, recently screened at The East Village Queer Film Festival. Jones is a performer, dancer, and creative humanoid from Mississippi. Her recent credits include Lakehouse (Jenny) and dancing professionally at The William Vale. The director of this summer's production is Diane Meo, the founder of the Austin TX based theater company, Ensemble Mercury.
