The top-selling show from last year’s Indianapolis Fringe Festival hits the New York stage as The Midtown International Theatre Festival presents ASSHOLES & AUREOLES, beginning July 27th.
An explosive and politically audacious comical collusion between playwright Eric Pfeffinger and the volcanically energetic actors Diane Kondrat and Karen Irwin, ASSHOLES & AUREOLES merrily shreds social mores like so much wet tissue paper, and is every bit as messy. Their collaboration has led to critics writing things like "If comedy shows had encores, I’d still be at the theater," "Belly laughs will mitigate the shock you feel," and "The effect reminded me of someone juggling silk scarves: delightful and much harder than it looks."
ASSHOLES & AUREOLES played to standing ovations and sold-out houses at last year’s Indianapolis Fringe and won NUVO magazine's best new play award. It's getting great reviews in Cincinnati before it makes its New York premiere this summer.
