Triple ThreatLucy McCormick
Lucy McCormick’s Triple Threat was a smash hit across festivals in Europe, including the Edinburgh Fringe and Dublin Fringe. Triple Threat makes its North American premiere at OUTstages, playing ONE NIGHT ONLY.
Post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad present a trashstep-dubpunk morality play for the modern world. Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy will attempt to re-connect to her own moral conscience by re-enacting the New Testament via a Nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and performance art. With trademark absurdism and enthusiasm, Lucy puts her best foot forward in the face of existential deadlock.
“Filthy and utterly hilarious” -★ ★ ★ ★ The Stage
“Lucy McCormick has the moves of Beyonce, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast… As a comedian she is fearless. As a performer she is reckless… She is one of the most extraordinary and extreme performers around”” – ★ ★ ★ ★ The Scotsman
AUDIENCE ADVISORY: This show is Adults Only (19+): Adult themes, nudity & strobe lights.
