Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope Comes To Feinstein's/54 Below

FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Mark Farrelly in Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope on 29th and 30th January 2019 at 7pm. West End actor Mark Farrelly (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) brings his hugely-acclaimed solo play Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope to Feinstein's/54 Below direct from a major UK tour for its first ever American performances. Naked Hope magically brings back to life one of the most memorable wits of the twentieth century. Quentin Crisp (1908 - 1999) spent years in London being beaten because of his sexuality, and famously never cleaned his flat because "after the first four years the dust doesn't get any worse." When portrayed by John Hurt in landmark film The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin became a star, moved to America, and was embraced as the original Englishman In New York, immortalized in the hit song by Sting. Naked Hope depicts Quentin's life in London and New York, recreating the legendary An Evening With Quentin Crisp. Expect laughter, pathos, and deep truth in this uplifting salute to the courage of the human spirit to be itself… no matter what they say.
