The Bitch Seat


In this interview-style, live talk show, host Lyssa Mandel (& co-host/boyfriend Phil Casale) invites guests to present poignant/painful creations from their adolescence on stage (poetry, drawings, songs, sketches, videos...Wicca boxes...) and follows with engaging questions that cut to the heart of how all our teenage pain is the same. And it's funny. Think of it as Judy Blume meets Dr. Phil. Raucous laughter and redemption ensue. Bar in the theater to chase down the pubescent demons.

Tickets are $8 in advance/ $10 by 1/07!
