WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Writer/performer/comedian Mike Albo presents his newest solo show The Junket, about what happens when your freelance job turns out to be your worst enemy. In this hilarious, harrowing, thinly-veiled tale, Mike gets a freelance gig to pen a column for the country's most influential newspaper. It's a dream come true, and after years of low pay, Albo thinks he may finally be able to afford NYC's new luxury loft lifestyle (he even gets a new stylish boyfriend). But after he goes on an over-the-top, ill-fated press junket, he becomes a gossip item on the city's snarkiest, meanest blog, and is thrown into an acrimonious war between old and new media. The Junket is a much needed investigation into the compromised state of modern journalism, provoking questions about how we get our news and who gives it to us.
