a play with songs and music
By Judith Sloan
Directed by Alexandra Aron
Songs written by Judith Sloan with Josh Valleau and Emily Wexler
Riva and Serena, two hairdressers from different generations and races, embark on a dream and create a sound studio in the basement of their hair salon in a Queens neighborhood.
We hear humorous stories about their families, customers, and neighbors, as well as discussions of gentrification and politics.
Then, when one of their clients faces a deportation crisis, the women are confronted with a moral dilemma.
