Overview

Tickets to this show are almost sold out. You may also be interested in Hedwig and the Angry Inch from April 18-23.

In this new work created by Dito Van Reigersberg for his vivacious alter-ego, Ms. Martha Graham Cracker throws her all into a musical fever-dream as she belts out a bevy of original songs. But are we witnessing the swansong of her career? She's been disappointed by love and that fickle mistress called showbiz one too many times, and now she is determined to protect her delicate heart by barricading herself in the most unlikely of places: the library. Trading glitter and glamour for pensive quiet and study, Martha decides to pursue a graduate degree in library science, but even amongst the stacks there is no escape from love.
