GLOW FESTIVAL: Tammy Faye Starlite
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 7PM
Tammy Faye Starlite

Nico: Evening of Light

Tammy Faye Starlite eerily channels Nico, chanteuse from the Velvet Underground and beyond (i.e., the overground) featuring her better-known and lesser-known songs, which encompass the ominous and beautiful opacity of her Teutonic soul, her recollections (Rashomon-style) about the men who loved her: Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, Jackson Browne, Iggy Pop (among others, many others), her musings on fate, nihilism, necromancy and the current state of the world, which is as protean as her flickering soul.

Part of GLOW Festival 2017.

Nico lives. Sort of. The enigmatic one-time singer for the Velvet Underground and dark chanteuse of the post-punk in the late-‘70s and ‘80s died 29 years ago after falling from her bicycle in Ibiza. But on Saturday night, performer Tammy Faye Starlite is re-envisioning (or re-animating) Nico at Oberon in Cambridge. More

In her mesmerizing theatrical shows, Ms. Lang has won critical acclaim for stepping into the skins of complicated veteran rock divas, like Nico of the Velvet Underground and the British rocker turned art singer Marianne Faithfull. Her newest show brings back Tammy Faye Starlite, a fictional character that made her a downtown New York club star more than a decade ago. More

Tammy Faye Starlite discusses her embodiment of Nico, the arctic chanteuse of the Velvet Underground. More
