Dandy Darkly's Myth Mouth!

by Dandy Darkly

directed by Ian Bjorklund

This October “New York City’s King of Halloween” (Out Magazine) returns to Horsestrade Theater at UNDER St. Marks with his latest off-off-Broadway show direct from a smash run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Announcing the New York premier of Dandy Darkly’s Myth Mouth! Dandy’s latest show explores themes of religious extremism, substance abuse and our contemporary worship of media technology via allegorical tales concerning a junkie Persephone, space puppy Laika, virtual reality addiction and humanity's first artist, Cha-Cha the Caveman. Dandy Darkly cites folklorist Joseph Campbell, recent celebrity deaths, his childhood love of mythology and his personal struggles with addiction as influences for crafting Dandy Darkly’s Myth Mouth! Dandy regales his wondrous tales of humanity and horror alongside a nonstop soundscape of prerecorded music composed by long time collaborators Adam Tendler (piano), Rachel Blumberg (percussion), and Bryce Edwards (bass and guitar). The show is peppered with eclectic sound effects to create a truly immersive storytelling experience. Ian Bjorklund returns as director. Dandy Darkly is an award winning storyteller, satirist and critically acclaimed cabaret artist. His work has been described as “fantastical fairytale horror, equal parts Tennessee Williams, Edgar Allen Poe and Bruce La Bruce” (Time Out) and “a cross between Pam Ayres, Liberace and Tales from the Crypt.” (The Scotsman) This “decidedly wicked storyteller” (New York Times) is "simply one of the most thoughtful, hilarious and harrowing queer talents at work today." (Scotsgay Magazine). Dandy Darkly's masterful and mesmerizing style of storytelling has astounded critics and audiences at festivals and theaters across the globe. He is the glittery, ghastly jewel of the East Village with four years of critically acclaimed, satirical solo shows tackling gun violence, misogyny, gentrification and political correctness. Dandy Darkly's delirious delivery shifts seamlessly from camp panache and hilariously caustic bitchery into bittersweet poignancy and reflective rumination upon modern life. Dandy Darkly must be seen to be believed. Dandy Darkly’s Myth Mouth! opens with an eight show run at UNDER St. Mark’s Theater on Friday, October 14th at 10:30 pm with additional shows on Monday, October 17th at 10:30 pm, Tuesday, October 18th at 7 pm, Thursday, October 20th at 10:30 pm, Saturday, October 22nd at 10:30 pm, Sunday, October 23rd at 7pm, Monday, October 24th at 7 pm and Tuesday, October 25th at 7 pm.
