"Scorching... Not to be missed."- Time Out New York
When her marriage, her body and her democracy fell apart, "matchlessly incendiary” (Time Out New York), "fiercely intelligent firecracker feminist comedian” (New York Magazine), Dead Darlings host, Pussy Grabs Back co-creatrix and New York Times contributrice Amanda Duarte turned to divorce, disco, drugs, democratic activism and domming to put her Humpty together again. Loosely inspired by the perplexing 1983 film, "Staying Alive" brings Duarte and special guests to the stage to romp and ruminate on what it takes for a "feminazi cunt” (@LockHerUp45, Twitter.com) to stay alive in 2019.
Written and performed by Amanda Duarte
Directed by Ellie Heyman
Dramaturgy by Mike Daisey
Music by the Bee Gees and Frank Stallone
