Written and performed by the talented rock singer/performer who was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award in 2006 for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her work at Theater J in BETTY Rules, Amy Ziff explores the meaning of Life and After-Life in this duet for actress and bathtub. Described by The New York Times as "a remarkable caricaturist," Amy brings a witty mix of high-brow bawdiness, laughter-inducing self-flagellation, and sly New Age wisdom to review a life spent behaving badly while trying to do good. Developed with Michael Greif, director of Rent, Grey Gardens and BETTY Rules. Rebecca Asher, experienced script supervisor from HBO’s Entourage, Arrested Development, and the cult hit film Donnie Darko, stepped in as director for the workshop preview at Ars Nova in New York, where it played to sold out audiences. Ziff, occasionally accompanying herself on the cello, breaks out and commands the spotlight in this eagerly anticipated premiere. The show runs 1 hours.
This engagement of Amy Ziff is a DC Performing Arts Presenters Initiative project, which is made possible through funding by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program.
A Theater J production at The Studio Theatre in Stage 4 1501 14th Street, NW in Washington DC, at the corner of P and 14th Sts.
