About this show

Remember the summer of 2001? From early May until September 10, 2001, we were deluged with round-the-clock coverage of a missing Washington, D.C. intern and her connection with a congressman. Rob Handel's Aphrodisiac poses the question: "What do you do if you wake up one morning and your dad, an undistinguished member of the U.S. Congress, is suddenly famous for his sex life...and under suspicion of murder? Is there a support group? And whom do you talk to -- Chelsea Clinton? If you're Avery and Alma Ferris -- the adult children of congressman Dan Ferris, currently under investigation in the disappearance of Ilon Waxman -- you try role-playing. You pretend to be the congressman and the intern. You maybe even summon up the most famous intern of all time for advice. The opening performance on Sunday, Jan. 9 will be at 3:00pm and there will be no performance that evening. There will also be one additional performance on Saturday, January 29 at 3:00pm.
