ERIN MARKEY Has A New Show—THE CURSE—And For A Change, She Keeps Her CLOTHES ON

Erin Markey, one of the brightest starlets of NYC’s off-center performance scene, ain’t shy about showing off some skin for dramatic effect.

In her autobiographical show, Puppy Love: A Stripper’s Tale, about her working at Midwest topless clubs, she also gets to demonstrate her pole-dancing skills—while playing the piano!

But for her “high-concept, low-budget” summer production, The Curse, she stays clad—in menswear—as Michigan family-guy Hardy Dardy, who hosts a radio talk-show in his suburban backyard.  In between interviews with a dazzling lineup of eccentric guests, he tends to the grill and serves bratwurst to the studio audience.

It’s a multi-media piece: the show web-streams live on Cupcake Broadcast Studios (co-founded by web-programmer Tim McNerney).  Listeners are welcome to call in with questions and comments.

This Saturday, August 16th, at Dixon Place, marks The Curse's final installment of the season.

There will be some flesh on display—Mr. Hardy’s guests include pole-dancer guru Kyra Johannesen.

And maybe Erin will invite you back to her dressing room...
