NYU Skirball will welcome in the New Year with the American premiere of Briefs: The Second Coming from Australia's Briefs Factory.
Briefs: The Second Coming is the inaugural presentation of Stonewall 50, NYU Skirball's yearlong commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the historic Stonewall Uprising, which took place only blocks from the NYU Campus. The celebration will feature special events, marches, panels, and parties.
Briefs: The Second Coming, an American premiere, is a madcap, all-male, gender-bending cabaret — a heart-stopping blend of burlesque, drag, Australian machismo, and punkish swagger. Its cast of six Aussies and one New Yorker are powered by a fierce energy as they mix up a potent blend of drag, glamour, and athleticism, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip syncing, sequins, feathers, and frocks.
