Gallimaufry Performing arts presents Naomi Grossman's "Carnival Knowledge: Love, Lust and Other Human Oddities" for a single performance before heading overseas for its European premiere as part of the 2010 Edinburgh Festival.
The "sneak-peek" performance will take place at 9 tonight at the Artists' Theatre, 625 Park Ave.
The audience is taken on a rough but thrilling ride through the twists and turns of the rollercoaster that is the search for one's soul mate, only to discover that maybe love is easier to find than it seems, according to a news release.
Set on a carnival midway, the award-nominated solo performer chronicles her dating history by depicting a freak show full of suitors: a touchy-feely yoga teacher, a furry in a chicken-suit, a touring Argentine football team, a dangerous, hot-headed hunk; and the list goes on. Her perils and pitfalls of playing the dating game ultimately lead her to rethink her strategy in the quest to find "the one."
