Really Really Gorgeous at The Tank, 312 W. 36th Street, NYC.

By Nick Mecikalski, Directed by Miranda Haymon.
With Giselle LeBleu Gant (The Announcer), Sophie Becker (Pen), and Amber Jaunai (Mar).
Apocalyptic climate change creates floods wiping out major cities and coastlines, political chaos, food shortages and so much mold we need to get our lungs cleared out. In such conditions our true selves and sense of loyalty to self and others emerge, as well as revelations about power — in others and in ourselves. A slow-and-steady plot development paired with good acting and interesting characters creates an evening of questions and self-reflection. Especially memorable is Giselle LeBleu Grant’s role as The Announcer, an entertaining cross between Oprah and Kellyanne Conway, if you can imagine that one!
Running time: 90 minutes with no intermission.
