Fresh from a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Caitlin Cook makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in Death Wish. Join this LA-born, NYC-based, Oxford-educated, hyphen-addicted raconteur for a raucous hour of music, comedy, and bathroom stall graffiti art to discover why she lives according to the following code: if something scares her, she has to do it. Featuring Cook’s original music as adapted by Broadway musical director Jared Stein (Spring Awakening, American Idiot, Rent), Death Wish has it all: show-stopping tunes that will get stuck in your head, hilarious and tightly-crafted jokes that will tickle your funny bones, insightful moments of pathos that will tug at your heartstrings, and gorgeously designed visuals that underscore this spellbinding show in its entirety. Do not miss out on this one-of-a-kind, multimedia phenomenon.
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
A gem of a show. The show is extremely tightly written, well-crafted, and devastatingly effective, unobtrusively drawing you in and then launching the ending at you. Cook’s comedy is intelligent, reflective, and often subtle. The songs are hilarious, the stories are wonderful, and the applause was huge. People were still grinning on the way out.
