SoHo Playhouse will present a special double bill this summer of The Village! A Disco Daydream and David’s Friend two acclaimed theater pieces by downtown veteran Nora Burns (Unitard) and directed by Adam Pivirotto, returning to the city by popular demand. They will run in rep from Wednesday, July 10 to Saturday, August 10. Tickets, which are $36 per show or a package of both for $60, are available online. 

Set in New York City in 1979, The Village! A Disco Daydream – which enjoyed "three sold-out runs at Dixon Place – is loosely based on Our Town (if Thornton Wilder had lived on Christopher Street). A colorful collage of characters drink, drug, dream, and dish about love, life, death and taxis, and, of course, break out into disco dance numbers. The show is a valentine to fashion, fantasy, fun, New York City and Donna Summer. The Village! features choreography by Robin Carrigan (Trick), sets by Steven Hammel and costumes by Paul Alexander.

David’s Friend, lauded as a New York Times “Critic’s Pick” when it debuted at La MaMa in 2017, is the story of a crazy friendship in 1980s New York City, a restless city during a reckless time. It’s a comic odyssey about cruising, disco, drag queens, strippers, sex, love, loss, and AIDS, told with music, videos, costumes, characters, tall tales and torrid truths. Written and performed by Nora Burns with direction by Adam Pivirotto (originally by Adrienne Truscott), and featuring adult entertainer Ricky Romano, this fast-paced show is a multi-media celebration of friendship, fun, freaks, fag hags, youthful passion, changing times, emotions, memories, Manhattan and music that moves your feet to a disco beat. 

The David’s Friend photo was taken by Patrick McMullan and The Village! collage was created by Scott Ewalt.
