La MaMa in New York City presented Cherchez La Femme: the musical—livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Sunday 12 June at 9 p.m. BST (London) / 20:00 GMT / 4 p.m. EDT (New York) / 3 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 1 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles).
"performed with infectious gusto"
—The New York Times
A madcap adventure featuring the music of August Darnell (AKA Kid Creole and the Coconuts) and Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band!
Set in New York City and the Caribbean in the 1980s, Cherchez La Femme is a musical extravaganza that tells the story of one man's loss and another man's gain and the powerful women who make it all possible. The show explores dark themes (abandonment, sibling rivalry, unrequited love) and light themes (sexual healing, the pursuit of happiness, the smell of success), but never without inviting you to shake your head and tap your toes to infectious neo-urban-jungle grooves.
