New York Values is Warhol Factory superstar Penny Arcade’s homage to the iconoclast, the outsider, the immigrant, the poor, the put-down, the visionary, the failed, the bohemian—those who live at the margins of what is an increasingly entrenched, fortified, and well-financed “mainstream” society. This emotional, informative, and interactive theater piece mediates through improvisational performance, storytelling, monologues, music, rants, and dance to elicit a sense of freedom and individuality in the audience itself. Told in the fragmented, disjointed vocabulary of today’s post gentrified landscape, music and movement intersect with crackling observations on the commoditization of rebellion, the nobility of failure, and the complex tapestry of art, criminality, rebellion, and iconoclasm that the great tradition of the “underground” is woven from. Miss Arcade will be joined by longtime collaborator Steve Zehentner, who creates a live sound score that will have you jumping in your seat.
