The Village! A Disco Daydream
After a sold out run last fall and an encore production this winter, Dixon Place will present a second encore run of THE VILLAGE! A DISCO DAYDREAM. This meta musical comedy filled with high jinks, low kinks, and go-go boys is written by Nora Burns (David’s Friend, Unitard) and directed by Adam Pivirotto, with choreography by Robin Carrigan and a cast of ten diverse actors and dancers.
Set in 1979 and loosely based on Our Town, THE VILLAGE! A DISCO DAYDREAM plays with themes of love, friendship, life, death and disco as it irreverently weaves its way from pre-AIDS New York City to the present day. Joyous, clever and bittersweet, THE VILLAGE! is a character-driven story of a time that no longer exists, yet whose essence remains a vital thread in the fabulous fabric of our collective queer consciousness. The play presents an intimate look at the queer life in Manhattan on the cusp of the AIDS crisis. Underneath the exuberant dancing and whip-smart dialogue is a stealthy pathos that packs a wallop.
