What’s more depressing than an aging child movie star? An aging child Reality TV semi-star! Katie Hartman and Leah Rudick blow up your brain in The Underdeveloped and Overexposed Life and Death of Deena Domino, the curdled odyssey of a baby pageant princess and monster extraordinaire. A wicked exploration of the duo’s twisted fear for the children who know nothing in their lives but the desperation of cheap fame, this hour-long comedy follows the life of one baby pageant princess into adulthood and beyond. When there’s nowhere to go but down, proceed with caution. And tampered amphetamines.
Directed by Daniel Pettrow (Wooster Group)!
“Shamelessly over-the-top, Deena is juvenile, tasteless, irreverent, vulgar, grotesque, profane and obscene. I loved every minute of it.” - TIME OUT NEW YORK
“Fearless. Deena plays like Gypsy was rewritten by the guys behind Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force.” - NYTHEATRE.COM
