In Nico: Underground, directed by Michael Schiralli, Tammy Faye Starlite stars as the '60s icon, Warhol superstar and Velvet Underground centerpiece who was born Christina Paffagen in pre-war Cologne, Germany. Starlite has spent the better part of four years developing the original script that draws from videos, interviews, biographies, rare recordings as well as first person interviews with those who personally knew the Teutonic chanteuse. Her seriocomic portrayal is a masterful characterization that includes performance of songs by Lou Reed, Jim Morrison, Jackson Browne, David Bowie, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Rogers and Hart as well as Nico’s own compositions. Nico: Underground’ is the world's first and only Sturm und Drang jukebox musical. The show’s backing band includes Keith Hartel (bass, guitar), Richard Feridun (guitar), Ron Miracle Metz (drums) Dave Dunton (keyboard) and Craig Hoek (sax, flute). Tammy Faye is joined onstage by Jeff Ward as The Interviewer; the two recreate actual encounters Nico had with journalists, based on the text by T. D. Lang.

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Direct from the Beckett Festival in Northern Ireland...New Yiddish Rep's groundbreaking production returns to New York as part of the 2014 Origin's 1st Irish Festival. 12 performances only! If this production doesn’t render the play in its true language of origin (as some have claimed), the production does, with haunting resonance, return “Godot” to the historical context of post WW II Europe in which Beckett was writing, in effect tracing it to its elemental moral and social roots. Beckett, a member of the French Resistance, wrote the play in French in ’48-’49. "Audacious... a revelation!" - The Forward “A production of zeal and intelligence! Hilarious and merciless! Essentially it’s perfect Beckett.” - The New Yorker Director Moshe Yassur, a veteran of both the Yiddish and modern theatre, notes that this production “is particularly Jewish, the characters are Holocaust survivors, they are facing the unimaginable, and they are waiting for answers that may not come. Yiddish, the language of laughter and tears, captures this sound, this feeling like no other language.” The authorized translation is by Shane Baker, a leading expert on Yiddish vaudeville and theatre who is an Episcopalian from Kansas City. Go figure. Joining the production’s distinguished multilingual and multi-ethnic New York cast as Pozzo is Allen Lewis Rickman (Coen Brothers’s “A Serious Man” and television’s "Boardwalk Empire"). Returning cast members include Rafael Goldwaser, who runs Théatre en l’Air in Strasbourg, France, as Lucky, and, as the hapless hobos Shane Baker, as Vladimir, and New Yiddish Rep’s artistic director David Mandelbaum, as Estragon. The 10-year-old Nicholas Jenkins, as the boy, also continues with the production. Presented in Yiddish with English supertitles.
