Whynot Jazz Room
What's that smell? Oh, Spring must have sprung! Following her sold-out show earlier this year, NYPAC's own Persephone is back at it with “Cecilia Corrigan's Secret Garden.” Featuring Corrigan’s trademark blend of comedy, monologue, poetry, and celebrity interviews, the event is a celebration of the long awaited springtime and all that comes with it: impulsive mating, manic monologues, hysterical laughter, and darling little flowers. So be like the bluebird, Bluebeard, and step into botanical bliss.

Cecilia Corrigan has debuted her performances in New York and Los Angeles. Her debut book, Titanic (Northwestern University Press, 2014), was awarded the Madeleine P. Plonsker Prize for a first book, and appeared on two of Flavorwire's “Books of the Year” lists for 2014, for academic press and poetry titles. She has previously worked on HBO's Luck, for show-runner David Milch, and recently completed her first feature screenplay. In addition to writing for television, film, and theater, she has published fiction in n+1 & elsewhere, and performs stand up comedy. Corrigan's last performance with NYPAC was featured in in Art in America's The Agenda and The Observer's 12 Things to Do in New York’s Art World Before March 2.
