Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome to the world-famous Hollywood Magic Castle! Cortez, our resident star-diva, will do anything to stay in the spotlight. Dee and Donya – the shady, kiki’ing, quick changing duet – have had it with Cortez’s shenanigans. Flip them over because they’re done. They’d like their turn at fame, but the Castle is in dire straits, and producer Barry thinks the answer is an infusion (or transfusion…) of fresh, young blood.

The show is produced under the following program(s):

Now accepting submissions! For the 23rd season of La MaMa Experiments we will focus on theatrical works in progress addressing mental health issues. No one is more familiar with the need to create greater access to mental healthcare than our New York audience, who come face to face with this crisis on a daily basis. After 3 years of a global pandemic, all of us are feeling the upsurge of anxiety and depression, but these trends have been on the rise long before Covid-19. The works this season shed light on important, personal stories and deal with this subject matter in many different and unique ways. From tongue in cheek comedies to absurdist tragedies, Experiments hopes to create a season that will destigmaify, enlighten and, yes, even entertain.
