ABOUT THE SHOW: It's 1928 in lower Manhattan and vaudeville performers Queenie and Burrs want to throw a party. As their rivals, lovers, and producers arrive, we meet a cast of characters searching for authenticity off the stage.  Fueled by bathtub gin, drugs, sex and adrenaline, this party asks about the masks we wear even when the lights go down.
