Andrew Cuomo’s Nipple Rings: An Oral History

It’s my pleasure to have contributed a 10-page comic, Andrew Cuomo’s Nipple Rings: An Oral History to the inaugural issue of The Flashpaper: The Theatre’s Thoughts on Right Now.

12 contributors tackled the prospect of theater in the post-social distancing age, using a variety of formats: short plays, essays, manifestos, photo series, and a comic that is less about the possibly pierced nipples of Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York than it is about the near dystopian challenge we face as theater artists.

Here’s a taste of my efforts:

Published in The Flashpaper, Issue Number One

It’s a print-only publication! So if you want it, you gotta throw some dough at The Flashpaper then park your ayuss by the mailbox, eagerly awaiting delivery while patting yourself on the back for supporting the future of theater, the people who make it, and the Indie Theater Fund, a small but mighty non-profit organization that swooped in and helped so many of us just hours after a raging pandemic forced every theater in NYC to close.

The debut issues features work by ​Raquel Almazan​, ​Clare Barron​, ​Sarah Einspanier​, ​Kelley Nicole Girod​, ​Ayun Halliday​, ​Kinesis Project dance theatre​, ​The Living Theatre, ​Tara Moses​, ​National Asian American Theatre Company​, ​Parallel Exit​, ​Meropi Peponides​, and ​Theater Breaking Through Barriers​, along with a foreword by ​David Henry Hwang​ and an afterword bySarah Treem​.
