Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company returns for its fourth installment in the Off the Wall series, following memorable performances demonstrating Lee’s subversive style and acerbic wit, dealing with Asian American stereotypes (Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven), African American culture (THE SHIPMENT), and last year’s dark comedy about life’s futility (We’re Gonna Die). In Lee’s latest experiment around gender politics, UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW, features six charismatic stars of the downtown theater, dance, cabaret, and burlesque worlds who come together to invite the audience on an exhilaratingly irreverent, nearly-wordless celebration of a fluid and limitless sense of identity.
“Please note that this performance contains adult subject matter and full nudity throughout”
UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW was co-commissioned through the Spalding Gray Award consortium including The Andy Warhol Museum, Performance Space 122, Walker Arts Center and On the Boards.
“Young Jean Lee’s ‘Untitled Feminist Show’ is one of the more moving and imaginative works I have ever seen on the American stage.” – Hilton Als, The New Yorker
"Young Jean Lee is, hands down, the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation . . . ['Untitled Feminist Show'] may well be her most daunting attempt to push her talent in a new direction."
— Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
""Never mind finding a category for this work: What matters is its genuine charm, wholesome and subversive at the same time."
— Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
