Bushwick Starr presents this stand-up comedy, musical autobiography of avant-garde performance artist Cynthia Hopkins, utilizing film and live music. More…
From the mind of acclaimed performance artist Cynthia Hopkins comes 'The Alcoholic Movie Musical!,' an experiment in live musical filmmaking that draws equal inspiration from 'Trapped in the Closet' and 'Dancer in the Dark.' A comedy routine about alcoholism delivered by Ms. Hopkins rapidly evolves into an operatic description of her quest to create an outlandish musical film telling her life story, culminating in a live enactment of this impossible film. Enhanced by the design of innovative video artist Jeff Sugg, 'The Alcoholic Movie Musical!' manifests through the tensile strength of live performance.
