Join legendary downtown performance artist, actress, poet, and theater maker Penny Arcade, a.k.a. Susana Ventura, for a night of word-driven entertainment showcasing her highly quotable wit and authentic spirit.

Penny Arcade debuted in 1968 at age 18 with New York’s Play-House of the Ridiculous, the seminal rock ‘n’ roll, queer, glitter/glam political theater. She became a Warhol Superstar at 19 and was featured in the 1972 Warhol/Morrissey comedy Women in Revolt. She is the author of ten full-length works and hundreds of solo performance pieces. Her text-based work has always focused on the other and the outsider, on individuality and authenticity. Her focus on community building as the goal of performance, and performance as a transformative act, marks her as an original on the world stage. Since 1992 she has collaborated with former architect and video producer Steve Zehentner in all her theater work, and since 1999 they have co-helmed The Lower East Side Biography Project, an oral history video project. https://www.pennyarcade.tv
