This performance has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologize for any inconvenience. 


Based on the poetry collection of the same name, Good Actors is an irreverent, moving, funny, genre-bending one-woman show about the beauty and impossibility of being human.

About the Show

How do we transition between art and life when life itself is a creative act? Where are the edges? Do we ever know what we’re doing? It's a bit Spaulding Grey and a bit Maria Bamford and a bit Sleater-Kinney. The text is grounded in everyday life and centers on subjects such as divorce, motherhood, loss and sexuality — all filtered through popular culture and a wry sense of humor. The performance is directed and produced by Aaron Angello and features bold, vibrant animations created specifically for the text by filmmaker Kelly Sears.
