Penny Arcade, a lifelong friend of Theater For The New City and her long-time collaborator Steve Zehentner, continue their development of Longing Lasts Longer, a passionate rumination on love, longing and the loss of New Yorks cultural identity. Celebrating three decades of unique and iconic performance art, Penny continues her practice of developing her work in front of a live audience in preparation for the premier of Longing Lasts Longer (The Club Version) at Britain's Edinburgh Festival 2015 at The Underbelly August 6 - 30th and Soho Theatre, London November 2- 21stIn the post-gentrified landscape of “The Big Cupcake,” where ideas too have been gentrified, Longing Lasts Longer is set in a New York disappearing under the weight of suburbanization, cultural amnesia and the politically correct straightjacket of consensus.An ode to the eternal seeker, is equal parts memoir, manifesto, cultural critique and Cri de Coeur, where Arcades snake-bite observations create a nourishing euphoric rush of truth telling as visionary as it is inclusive and hilarious.Embedded into this rollicking landscape, a live-mixed soundscape of music grooves ranging from Al Green to John Lennon, jump, counterpunch and exalt, charting an emotional pathway for the audience and a new anthem to personal happiness.Driven by her magnetic rock n roll energy, Penny Arcade creates a crack in the post-gentrified landscape that will have rocking in your seat with live mixed tracks by Steve Zehentner and where you can where you can think and laugh at the same time!
