WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

One night only! Beauty and the Beast is an innovative collaboration between British TV actor and disability arts celebrity Mat Fraser and New York downtown art queen Julie Atlas Muz. Together they have developed a moving, sexy, wanton, intelligent, and thought-provoking show as Fraser and Muz reveal their fantasy world and perform beastly acts for you. As the Beast, Fraser uses his physical deformity to demonize the desires of humankind. Muz plays Beauty, revealing the unconscious obstinacy with which girls are brainwashed by the old fairy tales. Fraser's social activism and anti-PC humor, coupled with Muz's feminist glamour and sexuality, create the apex of inclusive (meaning disabled and non-disabled artists) performance art theater, where the message of accessibility is integrated in a charged and truly joyful play. VIP tickets will be sold for reserved seating, signed poster, gift bag and a rose to throw. Contains nudity. No children under 18 permitted.
