UBU FOR PREZ NOV 20TH!!!
Why vote for Donald or Hillary? On November 20th, America's TRUE LEADERS will reveal themselves...TONY TORN and JULIE ATLAS MUZ as KING & QUEEN UBU! After burning 42nd street to the ground, UBU SINGS UBU brings their scorched earth policy to The HIGHLINE BALLROOM. Chelsea is shaking it its collective boots.
UBU SINGS UBU is a sexy, face-melting mash up of underground rock show and absurdist theater that is definitely NSFW! Featuring ten songs by cult band Pere Ubu!
In UBU SINGS UBU, the songs of alt-rock legends Pere Ubu are sung by the character Pere Ubu himself, star of Alfred Jarry's legendary scatalogical satire "Ubu Roi". The New York Times calls the show "Loud, inspired and more than a little deranged...This is "Ubu" as punk cabaret, dynamic dance numbers and all." And Time Out New York says "[The musical] numbers are splendid, enraged, hilarious and f*****g well played"!
"Why choose between psycho Hillary or psycho Donald?" says Ubu. "With Ma Ubu and I, you get two psychos for the price of one!" The leader known for biting off the head of his predecessor, disemboweling members of the 1%, and making gay marriage mandatory, hopes to position himself as the moderate alternative in this increasingly polarized election. "Whatever the results on November 8th, King and Queen Ubu will declare themselves winners! Come join our victory celebration at the Highline Ballroom November 20th!"
