“A blend of song, dance, comedy and prayer that will make you piss your pants.
Adult underpants suggested.” -- The Village Voice
“a sparkly spot in our drab world... her performances land halfway between
trailer-park variety show and Vegas Strip car crash” -- Time Out
Cult sensation DINA MARTINA returns to New York with DINA MARTINA: AMPLE WATTAGE at The Laurie Beechman Theater. After attaining cult status in her native town of Seattle and touring nationally, Martina’s official New York debut in 2005 sold out in minutes. Her follow-up shows have left jaded audiences (including Whoopi Goldberg, John Waters, Matt Stone, John Cameron Mitchell, Margaret Cho, Bruce Vilanch, Joyce Dewitt, and Jeff Stryker -- a list as strange has her shows) stunned and clamoring for more.
DINA MARTINA: AMPLE WATTAGE, like all of Martina’s surreal shows, is a nearly indescribable night of unique entertainment that assaults the senses like no other show. It promises to be a delightful blend of unequalled song, unnecessary dance, unattractive costumes, unbelievable video and unwanted gifts for lucky audience members. Perhaps the best description of Dina comes from a glowing review in Seattle’s famed alternative weekly The Stranger: “Her voice sounds like a cat having an epileptic fit on a chalkboard, her body moves like two pigs fighting their way out of a sleeping bag, and her face looks like the collision of a Maybelline truck with a Shoney's buffet. But Dina redefines what it means to be a star.”
DINA MARTINA has packed venues throughout Seattle as well as in Provincetown, Philadelphia, Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco and London. Martina has shared the bill with acts such as Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, Justin Bond, Nina Hagen and The Village People. She's the recipient of two GLAAD Media Award nominations for Best Off-Off-Broadway Show, two Footlight Awards from The Seattle Times (1999 & 2004), a 1997 nominee for a Seattle Stranger Fringe Theater Award for Best Solo Show, and a finalist for the 2007 Alpert Award.
DINA MARTINA: AMPLE WATTAGE runs September 20 - 30, Thursday - Sunday at 7:30pm except Thurs. Sept 27, which is at 9pm. The Laurie Beechman Theater is located inside West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street -- at Ninth Avenue, accessible from the A,C,E,N,R,V,F,1,2 & 3 trains at 42nd Street). Tickets are $22 plus a $15 food/drink minimum. To purchase tickets call 212-352-3101 or visit www.SpinCycleNYC.com.
