Brooklyn 2012, where you can be whatever you want until your visa expiresInspired by a true, bittersweet love story of one band’s artistic triumph via technology and music, Greencard Wedding is part rock concert, part Skype film featuring notable locations in the New York indie rock scene. This multi-media indie rock musical speaks to how we define ourselves as artists, the politics of immigration, and artist visa regulations. Performed in English and some Gaelic. Wedding cake served to all audience members.

Greencard Wedding is performed by the critically acclaimed Irish/American duo Jody Christopherson(The Other Mozart) and Ryan McCurdy (Diana Oh’s {my lingerie play} at Rattlestick) with filmed appearances by Morgan Zipf-Meister and David Anzuelo and music by Jody Christopherson, Ryan McCurdy, Adam Swiderski (of SuperMajor), and David Anzuelo.

Performances will be Wednesday, November 29 at 8:30pm, Thursday, November 30 at 8:30pm, Friday, December 1 at 8:30pm, Saturday, December 2 at 8:30pm, Sunday, December 4 at 4pm, Saturday, December 9 at 4pm, Tuesday, December 12 at 8:30pm, Thursday, December 14 at 8:30pm, Saturday, December 16 at 8:30pm, and Wednesday, December 20 at 8:30pm.

AMP is a multi-media solo horror piece about scientist Luigi Galvani’s discovery of animal electricity in 1790 and how it informed the creation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as well as the development of electroshock therapy in the 1950’s.

In AMP, Mary Shelley begins the process of writing Frankenstein on stage. Mary’s monologues are interwoven with film interviews of a woman who auditions for the Boston Symphony during their first historic “blind auditions” and is committed to an asylum.

Written and performed by Jody Christopherson and directed by Emma Rosa Went with sound and projection design by Martha Goode featuring projections shot on location inside abandoned asylums on the East Coast. Additional text by Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Luigi Galvani.

AMP was previously developed through residencies at Write Out Front and All For One Theater. For the play AMP, Jody Christopherson is the recipient of a 2017 New York Society Library grant, for emerging female writers writing about history and literature.
