PRIMARY STAGES Presents
THE TRIBUTE ARTIST
By CHARLES BUSCH
Directed by CARL ANDRESS
With CHARLES BUSCH, JULIE HALSTON, MARY BACON, CYNTHIA HARRIS, KEIRA KEELEY, & JONATHAN WALKER
'ENTERTAINING! TWO TOP COMIC ARTISTS, IN PERFECT HARMONIC DISHARMONY!'
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Primary Stages welcomes back their favorite farceur Charles Busch, the author of You Should Be So Lucky and Olive and the Bitter Herbs, and Broadway's The Tale of the Allergist's Wife. This new comedy features Mr. Busch himself as an out-of-work female impersonator who, when his elderly landlady dies in her sleep, takes on her identity in order to hang on to her valuable Greenwich Village townhouse. This 'perfect' scheme goes awry and leads to a wild path of twists and reversals plotted by an eccentric rogues gallery of outrageous schemers. Expect Busch's signature blend of quick-witted banter and gender-bending hijinks in this new play the master of Off-Broadway farce.

The running time of The Tribute Artist is 2 hours and 15 minutes including one intermission.
