The agony and the ecstasy of “self-help” get a delirious makeover in this madcap dance-theatre extravaganza. Part 1960’s dance party and part Nietzschean nightmare, Whammy! prods and probes the American fever dream where Dr. Phil, Diazepam and daily affirmations crash headlong in self-medication, suicide and The Shirelles. WTF? Want to know the seven secrets to a sane self? You know you do! And there’s only one way to find out!
Following their critically-acclaimed production of Titus Androgynous, YoungLiars return to the stage with their original creation. Whammy!, created in 2010, was most recently presented at the NYC Fringe Festival in 2013, along with benefit performances that year in St. Louis and Columbus, OH. This production features new material, new choreography and a brand new cast joining original cast members Maggie Conroy and Jeff Skoblow.
