kristina wong in cat lady, november 4-6

If you're in the Bay Area, our old friend Kristina Wong invites you to her new show Cat Lady, described as "a little Ed Hardy meets Lord of the Flies meets cat pee," exploring the parallel lonely worlds of cat ladies and pick up artists. What the heck is that supposed to mean? You'll find out. It's happening November 4-6 at the ODC Theater in San Francisco.

To create the show, Kristina interviewed Asian pick-up artists, attended their trainings and even went to a meeting of the "Casanova Crew," and incorporated a lot of these pick-up artist exercises, pick-up routines, text, and interviews into the show. She also did a lot of research about animal hoarding. Here are some more details about the show:

"Raucous and irreverent -- that's Wong in a nutshell." -- The Associated Press

A little Ed Hardy meets Lord of the Flies meets cat pee, CAT LADY blends the parallel worlds of two pathetically lonely personas living at the margins of gender and society-musty cat ladies (who make solo performance for a living) and fast-talking male pick-up artists. This multi-media theater piece incorporates the psychology behind hoarding (both of animals and humans), pick-up artist techniques, anecdotes from unmarried women who live alone with cats ("cat ladies"), and Wong's attempts to simultaneously end racism and get her cat to stop spraying.
