Pussy Valley

Pussy Valley

We haven’t seen that much about Pussy Valley, the new show at Mixed Blood Theater, but we’re very excited for what could be one of the best, and maybe boldest and deepest, shows of the year. Playwright Katori Hall, the first African American to win the prestigious Olivier Award, describes her new work as being “at the intersection of hip hop and strip club cultures”, and the story about four strippers in rural Mississippi explores the identities and relationships of its African American, white, gay, straight, young, and old characters. Run begins Friday. Tickets available online, $20. —Tracy Oxford
