Direct from her engagement at the Criterion Theatre in London's West End, the voice-throwing queen makes her New York debut. With handcrafted masks that transform audience members into "live puppets," along with her sidekick, the foul-mouthed Monkey, Conti creates a brand-new show nightly. This is ventriloquism for a new generation.
See it if you like to laugh. NC is skillful, funny. Superior parts were scripted and Monkey "alone." Time moved swiftly, except for human puppets.
Don't see it if you're impatient w/improv. Some was brilliant, but not all. The sum of the evening is fluff. Still NC is a force of nature.
