LONGING LASTS LONGER
Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre, in collaboration with NYC’s White Horse Theatre Company, closes out its 2024 SoloFest with the legendary downtown performance artist Penny Arcade in her one-woman show “Longing Lasts Longer”. A unique blend of stand-up comedy and memoir set in a riveting rock-and-roll soundscape mixed live onstage by Penny Arcade’s collaborator of 29 years Steve Zehentner, “Longing Lasts Longer” is a fierce, visionary, and ultimately forward-looking critique of the erasure of history, the rise of nostalgia, and the pervasiveness of cultural amnesia created by international gentrification – a crack in our planet’s post-gentrified landscape, shining a light on the path to individual authenticity. This international performance legend, whose name has become globally synonymous with “Downtown New York Art”, combines poetics, comedy, and rock-and-roll into what can only be called cultural critique you can dance to! “Longing Lasts Longer” will be presented Friday March 22 and Saturday March 23 at 7:30pm and Sunday March 24 at 2:00pm on Bridge Street Theatre’s “Priscilla Mainstage, located at 44 West Bridge Street in Catskill, NY.
