The new revue Jukebox Jackie: Snatches of Jackie Curtis -- conceived and directed by Tony Award winner Scott Wittman at La MaMa -- will feature special appearances at certain performances by such legendary performers as Penny Arcade, Jayne County, Cherry Vanilla and Agosto Machado. The production will run May 24-June 10, with an opening on May 30.

As previously reported, the show is a collage taken from the work of poet and playwright Curtis and will feature Mx. Justin Vivian Bond, Bridget Everett, Cole Escola and Steel Burkhardt.

Jackie Curtis performed as both a man and a woman throughout his career, stating, "I'm not a boy, not a girl. I'm just me, Jackie." He was, in fact, a fixture during those radical years in New York's clubs and theatres, including La MaMa.

Wittman, winner of the Tony Award for Best Score for Hairspray and songwriter for the NBC series Smash, created Jukebox Jackie, having experienced and been influenced by Curtis's work as a writer and a performer.

Jukebox Jackie is collaged by Scott Wittman and Tony Zanetta, designed by Scott Pask, with lighting by Aaron Spivey, costumes by Rita Ryack, staged by Joey Pizzi and musical directed by Lance Horne.
