Peaches Christ Superstar. Savor this. Exalt this. Embrace the needling suspicion that life may irrevocably slide downhill from here. Electropunk experimentalist Peaches, known for bending gender and societal standards with lyrical flair and spandex contortions, brings her own special defiling of the Holy Trinity to the Society for Ethical Culture. The lawless lady performs all parts in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rices elaborate musicalJesus, Mary Magdalene, and morewith ivories accompaniment from rapper/pianist Chilly Gonzalez.
