Nora Burns David’s Friend
December 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A feisty and funny one-woman show…her odyssey will bring alive the period and its pleasures (and poisons) with pungent animation. —Charles Isherwood, New York Times
David’s Friend is the story of a crazy friendship in 1980s New York City—a restless city during a reckless time. It’s a comic odyssey about cruising, disco, drag queens, strippers, sex, love, loss, and AIDS, told with music, videos, costumes, characters, tall tales, and torrid truths.
The beauty of David’s Friend is, you didn’t have to be there. Burns was, and she brings it alive for the rest of us. —Marc Miller, NY Theatre Guide
A potent performance about the passing of a great era, beautifully captured, with wells of compassion and funniness. I wish I had known David, but now I do. —Sandra Bernhard
