Karen Finley, widely known for her intense performance style and incisive writing will star in the West Coast premiere of her critically acclaimed one-woman show Shut Up and Love Me at the Coast Playhouse for an exclusive four week engagement prior to Off-Broadway.
If all you know about Karen Finley is that she smeared choclate on her naked body and fought Jesse Helms and the NEA, you ain't seen nothing yet! She returns to the Los Angeles stage with a wild retort to her NEA challengers. Karen's bold deconstruction of pornography in America is fierce, passionate, and hysterical. Finley explores the romantic and unromantic aspects of love and sex with humor and candor in this new work. Fresh from it's New York premiere in December, Finley's latest offering is a funny and sometimes jarring mix of theatrical segments, featuring poetic and intensely vivid spoken word pieces and even a disturbingly awkward srip tease.Warning: This show contains nudity and sexually explicit material
