A Ride on the Irish Cream

The Abrons Arts Center–based Realness always pushes our ideas of performance forward, usually by means of avant-queer and dance-theater works. This year the roster includes Jillian Peña, Keith Hennessey, Jack Ferver, Yvonne Meier, Jonathan Capdevielle, Ligia Lewis, Heather Kravas, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, M. Lamar and more. But the marquee item is gonzo neocabaret star Erin Markey’s musical comedy A Ride on the Irish Cream, in which the great Becca Blackwell plays Markey’s lover-cum-horse. We’ve been dreaming of this one for ages; at last, it is real.
