This daring new musical satire introduces us to Mandi, a wealthy New York socialite who doesn’t know she’s Black! In the words of the show’s villainess (that’s me!): “How is that even possible?”
While Mandi goes about life as a highly-sheltered ersatz white woman, the story’s comic villainess, Margarita Torres (still me!), makes it her personal mission to destroy Mandi’s blonde illusion.
After getting a workshop and a staged reading in New York, this marks the first full production of Denial! and packed audiences are greeting it with howls of laughter.
Are you ready to face the music(al)?
This show marked Eileen’s New York premier! Happily, she landed the role the first week of her arrival, a week fraught with a surprise snowstorm, difficulty getting seen at auditions, and a broken heel on her favorite shoe. She played her favorite character: The Villain!
