The play is written by Jean-Claude van Itallie.
The Fat Lady Sings is currently running at the Downstairs Theatre at La MaMa. Written by Jean-Claude van Itallie, the production is directed by David Schweizer.
The play is described as follows: "An unhappy white authoritarian American evangelical family — the father eerily like today's occupant of the White House — lives out its painful confusion of the real and the virtual on a dreamlike wooden many-sailed 17th-century merchant ship. The ship symbolizes the centuries-old destructive patriarchal, capitalist, and religious myths ruling the family's life. Exploited by politicians, preachers, and commercial corporations, the family is filled with rage, despair, and denial."
The cast will includes Lauren Flanigan, Tony Torn, Jake Horowitz, Nancy McArthur, and Jose Useche.
