The new off-Broadway drama Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance) officially opens on May 7 at the Public Theater. Written and directed by avant-garde theater pioneer Richard Foreman, the piece will play a limited engagement through June 2.
Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance) features snapshots from an enigmatic fairy-tale in which Suzie, the elusive coquette, brings Samuel to his knees—from where he worships a life he only half understands. Starring Alenka Krigher and Rocco Sisto, this expressionistic chamber-play twists emotional heartache into a landscape of continual mental invention.
The production also features performances by Stephanie Hayes, Nicholas Norena and David Skeist, with costume design by Gabriel Berry and lighting design by Yael Lubetsky.
