Waterwell, one of the Village Voice’s Best Arguments for Devised Theater (2010) and creators of #9 and The|King|Operetta, present their latest drop, the live concept album, GOODBAR. Created in collaboration with NYC glam-punk band, Bambï, GOODBAR blurs the boundaries between music and theatre while tackling one of the most controversial cult artifacts of the '70s: Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Riffing wildly on the novel by Judith Rossner, Bambï & Waterwell crank the amps up to 10 and launch a full frontal assault on modern myths of sex, independence, and persona. GOODBAR also integrates video performances by Ira Glass, Moby, Bobby Cannavale, and many others.
