Penny Arcade and her long-time collaborator Steve Zehentner, continue their development of Longing Lasts Longer, a passionate rumination on love, longing and the loss of New York’s cultural identity.

In the post-gentrified landscape of “The Big Cupcake,” where ideas too have been gentrified, Longing Lasts Longer is set in a New York disappearing under the weight of suburbanization, cultural amnesia and the politically correct straightjacket of consensus.

An ode to the eternal seeker, Longing Lasts Longer is equal parts memoir, manifesto, cultural critique and Cri de Coeur, where Arcade’s snake-bite observations create a nourishing euphoric rush of truth telling as visionary as it is inclusive and hilarious.

Embedded into this rollicking landscape, a live-mixed soundscape of music grooves ranging from Al Green to John Lennon, jump, counterpunch and exalt, charting an emotional pathway for the audience and a new anthem to personal happiness.

Driven by her magnetic rock n’ roll energy, Penny Arcade creates a crack in the post-gentrified landscape where you can think, laugh and dance at the same time!
