David’s Friend is a fast-paced multi-media show is a celebration of friendship, fun, freaks, fag hags, youthful passion, changing times, aging, emotions, memories, music and Manhattan. David’s Friend is a coming of age story, a love story, a loss story, and a New York story, a story we all know and experience in some way, and, as David would say, “a story that just gets better with the telling.”

| Dramaturgy by Lucy Sexton (DanceNoise) | Artistic Direction by Tal Yarden |
| Visual Collaboration by Len Whitney | Featuring Billy Hough |

“a feisty and funny one-woman show”

Charles Isherwood, The New York Times


“The show delivered on all fronts — it’s funny, it’s nostalgic, it’s touching, it’s poignant and it’s smart.”

Kenneth in the 212


“…in her stage memoir “David’s Friend” she conjures up a vivid portrait of a carefree, hedonistic era that seeped away tragically and wrenchingly.”

Marc Miller, NY Theatre Guide


“The beauty of “David’s Friend” is, you didn’t have to be there. Burns was, and she brings it alive for the rest of us.”
