THE BIG LIP AND OTHER BACKTALK, 2000

Dixon Place, NYC

Noir lives in an evening of shadowy dialogue and music with attitude. Two actors talk their way through a series of dangerous situations, accompanied by Harry Mann on reeds and keyboards. Their encounters include THE BIG LIP, a one-act update of nick and Nora Charles, and a few songs with lyrics that seem to mean more than they say.
