BY Robbie Armstrong, February 18, 2020
Alumna Lucy Powis ’18 produced Really Really Gorgeous at The Tank. The world premiere production penned by Nick Mecikalski and directed by Miranda Haymon played the 99-seat Manhattan Theatre for 16 performances, closing February 9, 2020.
In Really Really Gorgeous enter America's disgusting and sensational future where everything is underwater, but the TVs still work. In a moldy shack, two women slosh through life together, each the other's only remaining companion, sharing dreams of stardom and power that will never, ever, ever come true. Except when they do. Really Really Gorgeous traverses the dystopian, the outlandish, and the magical to arrive at the collision between love, celebrity... and the apocalypse.
