Wives - Off-Broadway
Starting at $49
From the brawny castles of 16th Century France, to the rugged plains of 1960s Idaho, to the strapping fortresses of 1920s India, all hail the remarkable stories of Great Men and their whiny, witchy, vapid, vengeful, jealous wives. In this kaleidoscopic, time-hopping comedy, Jaclyn Backhaus pushes past patriarchal cliche to reach an ecstatic breakthrough, untethering stories and history, and language itself, from the visions made by men.
