Karen Finley to Reprise Make Love at the Cutting Room
In the piece, being presented in honor of the seventh anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, Finley channels Liza Minnelli in song, dance, glamour and glitter. Liza's tragicomic life is the backdrop as one New Yorker grasps to make sense of post-9/11 America. The show co-stars drag performer and artist Chris Tanner, pianist Lance Cruce, and a rotating roster of Liza Minnelli impersonators.
Finley is an acclaimed and often controversial performance artist, whose shows include Wake Up!, The American Chestnut, The Return of the Chocolate Smeared Woman, and We Keep Our Victims Ready. She is currently developing a new solo show Impulse to Suck, which was recently presented at PS 122 and will be seen later this season at Joe's Pub, as part of that venue's 10th anniversary celebration.
