About this show

Actor/performance artist John Fleck presents the New York debut of his newest, frantic song and dance spectacle, Nothin' Beats Pussy. Fleck portrays his butch ex-army father, his glamour-hungry mother, a talking fist named Pussy and an entire cast of characters in this one man cabaret where, according to Fleck, "blond ambition and upward mobility rear their ugly heads." Developed and workshopped at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Warhol Museum in Pittsburg and the Evidence Room in Los Angeles over the past year, the show takes its title from a conversation Fleck had with his father about being gay. After discovering an adolescent Fleck dressed in his mother's nightgown and wearing one of her blonde wigs, his father's only words of advice or encouragement to his son after demanding to know if he was a fruit were simply, "Nothin' Beats Pussy."
