...Her's a Queen by Red Eye Theater in Minneapolis!

I am so so excited! Miriam Just and Steve Busa at Red Eye Theater in Minneapolis are doing the first ever production of one of my Pop Star Shows that I'm not in. I'm so psyched and I'll be in the house on the final night, but you should all go see this!!!!


"Red Eye celebrates the opening of its 35th season with company co-founders Steve Busa and Miriam Must’s farewell production as leaders of the Twin Cities’ preeminent experimental theater and performance laboratory. Neal Medlyn’s …HER’S A QUEEN will be the final production at Red Eye’s longtime home in its storefront theater in the Loring Park neighborhood, as the company completes a planned leadership transition and shifts into temporary nomadic mode while laying the groundwork to establish a new performance space. Bears and nuns, snakes and knives, wrestling matches and cuddle parties all appear in …Her’s A Queen, a playful meditation on all things Britney Spears and the public’s fascination with celebrity and pop culture. Liberally mixing fact and fiction, the piece draws from a wealth of Britney interviews, songs, and biography, as well as the author’s own personal history, to present a complex rendering of stardom’s contradictions, the toll it takes on those who reach its apex, and our appetite for each salacious detail."

Neal Medlyn opens for Champagne Jerry as part of Under the Radar Festival, January 8, 2017

The Champagne Room is a magical room that has been secretly hidden for years. Inside lives Champagne Jerry and his entourage, the Champagne Club, with enough cheap gold, dance, effervescence, and memories to last a lifetime. Semi-retired performance artist Neal Medlyn returns with songs from his notorious career to help open the Champagne Room for a performance and event that will change everyone’s life. This is Champagne Jerry in the Champagne Room feat. Neal Medlyn.

Named one of the top ten best performers in New York by Time Out, profiled in Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Interview Magazine, Champagne Jerry is a project of Neal Medlyn alongside collaborators Max Tannone, Adam Ad-Rock Horovitz and his onstage entourage of Tannone, Sophia Cleary, Farris Craddock and the Ghost of Champagne Past. Champagne Jerry continues Medlyn's work in his Pop Star Series.
