It’s a cardinal rule of writing, an art form in which editing is Pope. In order to get that play, novel, story or song into fighting shape, a writer must be willing to cut out material that feels like the child of their soul, but just doesn’t quite fit the piece… in writerspeak, we say- “Kill Your Darlings.” Sometimes these precious soul children resurface in other pieces, but often they pile up on the desktop, never to find a home… until now. Come see New York’s hottest writers, artists and performers resurrect their favorite dead darlings LIVE ON STAGE… in the perfect spot for a resurrection- A CHURCH! The show is hosted by writer-performer and female drag queen Amanda Duarte (co-writer of the “Hurt Locker: The Musical” faux-bill for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Internet Feminist, downtown comedy and storytelling regular).
Amanda Duarte, Host of Dead Darlings invites special guests:
Bowen Yang (Comedian)
Emily Flake (Cartoonist, The New Yorker)
Jessica Bennett (Journalist, The New York Times)
Jaclyn Backhaus (Playwright, Men On Boats)
A monthly NYC Salon in which NYC personalities perform, read, sing, whatever a piece of their work that died on the cutting room floor.
Show starts at 8pm, but get there early for tunes, snacks and booze at 7:30pm!Buy tickets/get more info now
