Conceived and Developed by Jess Conda
Original Stage Direction by Madi Distefano
Musical Direction by Andrew Nelson
Brat Productions returns to Underground Arts with last year’s Fringe hit Eternal Glamnation, a nuclear GlamRock fantasia about finding your true self underneath the glittery shadow. Conceived by and featuring Artistic Director Jess Conda, this show features rockers Ben Diamond, Francis Distefano, Bobby Fabulous, Peter Gaffney, Kevin Jordan, Erik Ransom as well as Conda herself in a Studio-54 blender cocktail of rock and roll mixed by renegade music director and performer Andrew Nelson. Expect selections from Bowie, T. Rex, Queen, and Lou Reed.
CAUTION: This show features sex, drugs, flesh, loud rock, profanity, and alien abductions.
ABOUT ETERNAL GLAMNATION:
“a slice, nay, a whole pie of rock music heaven...” – Alejandro Morales, Philly Gay Calendar
"a fabulously overheated showcase of camp, down-and-dirty, fuck 'n' run theater featuring trampy music from glam's masters acted and vocalized with hammy aplomb..." --AD Amorosi, City Paper
"when Jess Conda belts out “You’re wonderful!” in the final refrain to her searing version of David Bowie’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide,” you gotta believe it." --Deni Kasrel, City Paper
“Glitz, camp, and nostalgia reign supreme in Conda’s musical and visual extravaganza…” – Deb Miller, Stage Magazine
ABOUT JESS CONDA:
“Conda is a thriller whose work is as brash as she is audacious.” – Philly Inquirer
“[Jess Conda's Rock & Awe] rips back the slick finish that profit-driven Broadway has put on rock 'n' roll cabaret” - Citypaper
