When LV's mother, Mari, starts dating a talent scout, he discovers that LV can impersonate the singers she loves. When he puts LV up on stage at a local cabaret club, the two women are forced to compromise what sustains them. Cartwright's play is wildly funny, dark and biting.

Stupid F***ing Bird  
Sideshow Theatre Company at Victory Gardens Theater - Biograph Stupid F***ing Bird
 
On the grounds of a country estate, two generations worth of Russians mope and love and hate and make a lot of bird-based metaphors. Sound familiar? It's Anton Chekhov versus the modern world in Aaron Posner's ballsy Midwest premiere. A smash-hit on the east coast and a finalist for the 2014 ACTA Award, this heartbreakingly hilarious sort-of-adaptation of The Seagull takes a baseball bat to one of theatre's most famous works and staunchly refuses to pick up the pieces. Sideshow's signature energy and wit are on full display in this very funny examination of what drives us to make art and find love.
