Uptown Players presents The Tribute Artist
To close its 16th season, Uptown Players will present the regional premiere of Charles Busch’s The Tribute Artist. An out-of-work female impersonator assumes the role of his elderly landlady when she dies in her sleep, 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.
Busch's signature blend of quick-witted banter and gender-bending hijinks excel in this new play from the master of Off-Broadway farce.
