'The Village! A Disco Daydream' Returns to Dixon Place

I was bummed that I missed the lovely and talented Nora Burns's latest show while we were away in Scandinavia. (Her comedy troupe Unitard made me cry laughing, and her one-woman show "David's Friend" had me crying the other kind of tears.) Now I'm thrilled to see I have a second chance!

Set in New York City in 1979, "The Village!" 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 encore engagement will be performed starting on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m. and running through Friday, Feb. 24. A meta musical comedy filled with high jinks, low kinks, and go-go boys, the show features a cast of 10 diverse actors and dancers. "The Village!" is written by Nora Burns ("David’s Friend," Unitard) and directed by Adam Pivirotto ("Shondaland"), with choreography by Robin Carrigan (Trick). Tickets cost $20-$28, and are available HERE.
