Comedian Kate Berlant is debuting a new one woman show off-Broadway later this year.
The one woman show, Kate, “Will explore the events of her life that have brought her to this moment. Embodying many characters in this tour de force performance, she expertly morphs before our eyes and exposes a truth she has, until now, kept hidden.”
In a statement, Berlant said “All my previous work has been a pale shadow, a humiliation, an impotent suggestion always gesturing toward, yet never quite arriving … until now. I can’t wait to welcome you into my home, which is the theater. Although I haven’t been home in a long time, it feels good to be back and I’m so grateful they kept the lights on for me. Although it is forbidden to take your shoes off in my home, I hope you will still allow yourself to shed a layer—to become vulnerable and receptive to the possibility of transformation.”
The show will be directed by Bo Burnham and runs from August 20th through October 8th. Tickets can be found here.
