Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance)


No one really believed Richard Foreman when he said in 2009 that Idiot Savant would be his last play, did they? The 75-year-old avant-garde auteur is now back at the Public Theater with Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance). As with any Foreman piece, don’t expect a straightforward story. His latest is described as an “enigmatic fairy tale” involving a mysterious coquette and the man who worships her. Don’t miss it. After all, maybe this time will be the last.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 6:30 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through June 2, 2013
