Today the cult Off-Broadway hit 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche announced that it will be standing with its fellow SoHo Playhouse, Inc. production The Old Man and the Old Moon in giving away free tickets to those displaced from their homes due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. At each performance, until all tri-state residents are able to safely return to their homes, twenty tickets will be given away to those displaced by the storm. Power has been restored to the SoHo Playhouse and 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche will resume performances tonight at 10:00 p.m.
For each performance, 20 complimentary tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis at The SoHo Playhouse’s box office to those who have been displaced who use the code word “SANDY.” Proof of identification listing the zip code of an afflicted area is required. Theater-goers may request up to two tickets.
Coming off a sold out run at FringeNYC where it won for Outstanding Production, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche takes us to 1956 where the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein are having their annual quiche breakfast. Will they be able to keep their cool when Communists threaten their idyllic town?
The play was written by Evan Linder and Andrew Hobgood with contributions by Mary Hollis Inboden, Megan Johns, Thea Lux, Beth Stelling and Maari Suorsa, directed by Sarah Gitenstein, and is presented by Tony Award winner John Arthur Pinckard (Clybourne Park, Silence! The Musical). The production stars Caitlin Chuckta, Rachel Farmer, Megan Johns, Thea Lux, and Maari Suorsa.
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche will play on the SoHo Playhouse Mainstage Saturdays at 10:00pm, and Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays at 7:30pm from October 13 to November 20.
