Musical comedian and producer/director Caitlin Cook (A.J. Holmes’ Yeah, But Not Right Now, Sean Patton’s Number One on Peacock) will bring her one-woman show The Writing on the Stall to Soho Playhouse for three long weekends in September. The show is directed by A.J. Holmes (The Book of Mormon, Kimberly Akimbo, StarKid Productions) and produced by Ali Gordon (StarKid Productions, UCB). Prior to her off-Broadway debut, Caitlin Cook performed this show and earlier versions of it at Edinburgh Fringe, Hollywood Fringe, Brighton Fringe, Manchester Fringe, and many other venues and festivals of note. "Legendary cock lobster." "My life is on fire, I think I'm in love." "Life ain't all burritos and strippers, my friend." These are just three examples of the bathroom stall graffiti that Caitlin Cook has been obsessing about and photographing for over a decade. Confessional, immersive, and uproariously funny, this one-of-a-kind show—literally set in a dive bar bathroom—transforms graffiti scrawled all over the stalls into the lyrics of her original songs and trail markers along the journey she takes us upon. Through these irreverent, poignant, and often obscene messages, Cook reckons with our shared humanity and what we owe each other. May include: slingshotted panties, milk pistols, and a cowboy dick (complete, with spurs!). Each performance will feature special opening acts, and so far, confirmed guests include: Marcia Belsky (Fire Island, Tonight Show) Jo Firestone (Joe Pera Talks With You, ZIWE) Josh Gondelman (Desus & Mero, Last Week Tonight) Alison Leiby (Oh God: A Show About Abortion, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) Isabel Hagen (Tonight Show, Just For Laughs: New Faces) Sean Patton (Peacock, Tonight Show) Emma Willman (The Late Show, Netflix’s The Comedy Lineup)
