AT THIS ANNOYANCE RESIDENCY SHOW…
The Annoyance presents Nervosa The Musical!
Nervosa: The Musical! is a full-length puppet show musical conceived of by Rachel Kaly, Sophie Zucker, and Maya Sharma. The play follows Anne (Sophie Zucker), a bulimic ingenue who moves to Nervosa, a safe haven for those who hate their bodies. She moves in with Clarissa (Rachel Kaly), a destructive 14-year-old whose sexual awakening was catalyzed by a school screening of Aladdin. Anne wants to have it all: love, friendship, and a tight ass–but is Nervosa the right fit for her? Or is she too fat?
