A Living Documentary

The March 6 will be live streamed in collaboration with live streaming startup 2ndline.tv.

Called a “breathtaking visionary” by TimeOut New York, Hopkins presents her sixth and newest evening-length work, a comedic, no-nonsense reflection on the trials and tribulations of earning a living as a professional theater artist in the 21st centuryIntertwining elements of musical comedy, documentary and fiction, A Living Documentary intersperses autobiographical storytelling with portrayals of semi-fictional comedic characters, all the while asking myriad questions about the realities of professional artistic life in New York City. A veritable departure from past works, A Living Documentary presents a stripped-down, one-woman-show, in which Hopkins plays both herself and an eclectic cast of characters. Featuring a number of Hopkins’ original compositions, both live and recorded music will accompany the work.
