Arriving from London, the real-life love story of a beauty (the delicious Julie Atlas Muz, a former Miss Coney Island and downtown performer whose neo- burlesque works have transfixed dance and art fans for nearly two decades) and a “beast” (Mat Fraser, the English musician, actor, and performance artist born with vestigial arms who married Muz two years ago) is woven into the Grimms’ fairy tale. Directed by Phelim McDermott of the English theater company Improbable and featuring explicit sexual situations, Beauty and the Beast has been lauded in the British press. Leave the kids at home.
Wednesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 13. Continues through March 30, 2014
