TAIL! SPIN! to Close Off-Broadway Without Extension, Jan. 4
Producers had previously announced a 9-week extension of the run, through February 1 (The previous closing date was set for November 30.), but that is no longer the case.
Tickets for Tail! Spin!, ranging in price from $25-75 (with premium seating available for $95), can be arranged online at www.TailSpinShow.com, by calling (866) 811-4111, or by visiting the Lynn Redgrave Theater, located at 45 Bleecker Street, two hours prior to each performance.
Using nothing but the words spoken, emailed, tweeted, texted and told by the politicians themselves, Tail! Spin! is created and written by Mario Correa (co-host of Entertainment Weekly's daily "News & Notes" program on SiriusXM and contributor to NPR and WNYC) and directed by Tony-nominee Dan Knechtges (Lysistrata Jones, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).
Politics is dirty - but politicians are dirtier. The truth is laid hysterically bare in Tail! Spin!, the wildly inventive new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Mark ("Appalachian Trail") Sanford, Larry ("Wide Stance") Craig, Anthony ("I Was Hacked") Weiner, and Mark ("Underage Page") Foley. Using only the actual words of the disgraced politicians, their paramours, and the skeptical media they tried so hard to spin, Tail! Spin! winningly weaves an intricate, overlapping narrative of the power of sex--and the sex lives of the powerful. The Tail! Spin! cast includes Arnie Burton (39 Steps), Rachel Dratch ("Saturday Night Live"), Sean Dugan (Next Fall, "Smash"), Tom Galantich ("House of Cards") and Nate Smith (UCB, FunnyOrDie).
As Tail! Spin! "stars" Mark Sanford and Larry Craig make all too clear, politicians' sex scandals are the gifts that keep on giving. So - just as with Sanford's recent melodramas and Craig's bathroom legal fees pile up, as reported just last month - Tail! Spin! will continually be updated to include new politicians making terrible choices.
