    Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues

    To share its 2007 hit with a wider audience, Theater for the New City will reprise "Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues," the raucous comedy written and directed by filmmaker-turned-playwright Matt Morillo, from December 3 to 20. Following its TNC run two years ago, the show went on to an Off-Broadway run in NYC and multiple engagements in Hollywood and Sydney, Australia, but it never seems to exhaust its audience.

    The play, Morillo's first, was published last spring by Samuel French, along with Morillo's second play, "All Aboard the Marriage Hearse." The show's website is

    The piece is a light-to-serious look at the psychology of nervous urban goddesses, parades a series of foxy, witty and anxious women who bear the expectations of the world like an itchy muffler. In a series of skits, they go head to head with such issues as Electra complexes, bikini waxes, low-rise jeans, oversexed mothers, thongs, brazen teenagers, men's sexual fantasies, side effects of birth control drugs, mean teenagers on the subway, sympathy sex and the artistic integrity of penises and vaginas in independent films. The show bills itself as "An Outrageous Comedy" and its postcards declare "Even though it's a play, it doesn't suck."

    Dates:  Dec. 3, 2009 - Dec. 20, 2009
    Schedule:  Thurs.-Sat. 8 p.m., Sun. 7 p.m.
    Venue:  Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave.
    Price:  $20
    Tickets/info:  (212) 868-4444
