Fringe Theater returns to Centenary Stage Company as Joanna Rush’s powerfully entertaining one-woman show, “Kick,” “kicks off” the series October 27.
“It’s not how high—it’s how strong”: On her way to her first big New York audition, dancer Bernie O’Connell is tricked into a car and attacked in a vacant lot off the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. “Kick” then follows Bernie from a kick-line to “A Chorus Line” to Hollywood and back as she picks up the pieces and finds the glue to put herself back together. Hailed as “riveting and truly worth seeing” by Kathryn Kitt of centerontheaisle.com, the show weaves a tale packed with wisdom and humor.
Written and performed by actor-playwright Joanna Rush, Rush’s credits include on and off-Broadway theater and television. The show is directed by Tony nominated Lynne Taylor-Corbett. Taylor-Corbett was nominated for two Tony Awards for direction and choreography of Broadway’s “Swing!” in addition to a Drama Desk Award.
