FRIGID New York presents Bathtub Jen and the Henchmen, written by Jennifer Harder, Glen Heroy, Charley Layton, and David Rosen. Directed by the Ensemble, the show will run tonight, February 20 - March 3, 2013, at Under St. Marks.
Bathtub Jen and the Henchmen is a steampunk collaboration of prohibitionistic proportions! Sneak into a world of slapstick, stand-up, and vaudeville with Jersey's finest speakeasy entrepreneur and her curmudgeonly ex-con husband as they embark on poorly judged money-making schemes, erotic escapades gone awry, run-ins with a keystone cop, and vignettes that include accordion, ukulele, clarinet, spoons, and trumpet.
Performed by Jennifer Harder, Glen Heroy*, and Charley Layton. *Appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association. Bathtub Jen and the Henchmen is an Equity approved showcase.
