About the show

Celebrated performance artist Karen Finley offers a breathless cascade of poetry and prose that lays bare the psychosexual obsessions that have burst to the surface of today’s American politics. More…

In this alternately funny and disturbing staged reading/performance based on her new book, Finley explores the Shakespearean dynamics that arise when libidos and loyalties clash in the public and private personas of Donald Trump, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, Harvey Weinstein, and others. The aggression of intimacy, the disparity of gender, and the vital importance of hair are all expressed with Finley’s raucous candor. Standing in the tradition of Allen Ginsberg’s Howl, 'Grabbing Pussy' speaks to a world increasingly divided into predators and victims.

Please note that there is also a $20 food/drink minimum at all performances at this venue.

“The ferocious new poet of the Trump Years...What’s most important and what makes Finley’s performances a must-see, is that her poems are the artistic exposure and reportage of what’s happening in the country right now. Like the Punk and Beat movements, Finley’s not waiting for historical perspective to tell us, artistically, what happened. She’s describing it, in lurid detail, right now, shouting at the world."

"While Finley's words have a sharp, rhythmic pulse that sparks off the page, audiences may also hear them from the author herself...There's a sustained sense of immediacy to Finley's work. While some have described the upswing in protests against the Trump administration as unproductive displays of anger, Finley's outrage is a call for action." Full Review

See it if Your time has come for a pilgrimage to NYC’s fiery and furious version of a Delphic Oracle. Insights abound, some comic, some tragic.

Don't see it if You are still unable to acknowledge how terribly cruel and uncaring Trump is... or Reagan before him.

Also Memorable line: “When was this better year?”
