I think I may have to attend STREEPSHOW!, a play featuring 14 iconic Meryl Streep characters (played by 12 actors) living together in the East Village.
From a press release:
This is the true story of 14 characters once played by Meryl Streep, picked to live in a house, and have their lives filmed to find out what happens when people stop being, oh I don't know, direct and start getting, well, breathy.
The characters in STREEPSHOW! have no knowledge of the actress Meryl Streep and think of themselves as real people with uncannily similar, tragic biographies. But when the winner of STREEPSHOW! is promised the opportunity to rewrite her tragedy, it's every Streep for her exquisitely-poised self. This is theater in reality TV drag, actors in Meryl drag, and America's pop music canon in cabaret drag.
This opens June 2. Get your tickets here.
