The off-Broadway production of Mario Correa's Tail! Spin! has extended its run at Culture Project's Lynn Redgrave Theater through February 1. Directed by Dan Knechtges, the show began performances September 18 after a run at the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival.

Tail! Spin! offers verbatim reenactments of the sex scandals that brought down former Congressman Anthony Weiner, former Governor and current Congressman Mark Sanford, former Congressman Mark Foley, and former Senator Larry Craig. The continually updated production uses only the words spoken, emailed, tweeted, and texted by the politicians themselves to weave a narrative about the power of sex and the sex lives of the powerful.

Rachel Dratch leads the cast of Tail! Spin! along with Arnie Burton, Sean Dugan, Tom Galantich, and Nate Smith.

The creative team for Tail! Spin! features scenic and projection designs by Caite Hevner Kemp, costume design by Jen Caprio, lighting design by Ryan O'Gara, and sound design by John Emmett O'Brien.
