JACQUELINE NOVAK: GET ON YOUR KNEES Extends And Moves To The Lucille Lortel Theatre
Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees, written by and starring Jacqueline Novak, has extended its limited run, due to the current run selling out and rave reviews. The show, "a standup comedy set that inclines towards theater (New York Times)," plays the Cherry Lane Theatre, (38 Commerce Street) through August 18 and then will move to the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, between Hudson and Bleecker Streets) beginning on August 28 for a run through September 21. Jacqueline Novak: Get on Your Knees is presented by Natasha Lyonne, and executive produced by Mike Birbiglia. Mike Lavoie, Carlee Briglia and Abingdon Theatre Company are producers.
Critics are raving about Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees. The New York Times cheered, "Critic's Pick! Brilliant on the absurdity of having and being a thinking, feeling, desiring, body. Shrewd, explicit, though not exactly raunchy, this is the funniest show about Cartesian dualism you will see all year!" Time Out New York applauded, "4 Stars! Absurd, real and hilarious. Novak's winning show does what the best comedy can do: It changes the conversation." New York Magazine said that the show is "clearly her masterwork" and The New Yorker raved, "the show is an over thinker's delight, and a reminder that a woman's humor can cut as deeply as her rage."
Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees is the most high-brow show about blowjobs you'll ever see. Novak spins her material on the femininity of the penis and the stoicism of the vulva into an unexpectedly philosophical show that's part feminist outcry, part coming-of-age tale of triumph.
Jacqueline Novak: Get On Your Knees is directed by John Early.
"Performing Get On Your Knees at Cherry Lane has been the single most satisfying experience of my career," said Jacqueline Novak. "I'm soaking up every second of it and am beyond thrilled by the response. I'm grateful and excited that I get to continue performing the show around the corner at the beautiful Lucille Lortel Theatre."
"I couldn't be happier that audiences and critics are loving Jacqueline's show," said Natasha Lyonne. "It's thrilling that more people will get to experience Jacqueline's fresh and unique voice and get to see her original, hilarious and absolutely spot on brand of comedy live."
