STREEPSHOW!

About The Show

This is the true story of nine characters, once played by Meryl Streep, picked to live in a house, and have their lives taped to find out what happens when people stop being, oh I don't know, direct and start getting, well, breathy. The characters in STREEPSHOW! have no knowledge of the actress Meryl Streep and think of themselves as real people with uncannily similar, tragic biographies. But when the winner of STREEPSHOW! is promised the opportunity to rewrite her tragedy, it's every Streep for her exquisitely poised self. This is theater in reality TV drag, actors in Meryl drag, and America's pop music canon in cabaret drag.

Episodes 1 and 2 will be performed June 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 11, 16, 18, 22, and 24
Episodes 3 and 4 will be performed June 10, 12, 17, 18, 23, and 24
