Politics is dirty—but politicians are dirtier. Mario Correa’s Tail! Spin!, a hit at the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival, will return to New York this fall for a limited engagement. Directed by Dan Knechtges, the cast will include SNL’s Rachel Dratch and begin performances on September 18. The official opening night is set for October 1 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater at Culture Project.
Tail! Spin! is an inventive new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Mark (“Appalachian Trail”) Sanford, Larry (“Wide Stance”) Craig, Anthony (“I Was Hacked”) Weiner, and Mark (“Underage Page”) Foley.
Tail! Spin! features scenic and projection designs by Caite Hevner Kemp, costume design by Jen Caprio, lighting design by Ryan O’Gara and sound design by John Emmett O’Brien.
