Brandi Alexander

The year is 1987 and Brandi’s back from a long hiatus, eager to greet her fans and dish out the secret to her success: she got raped. Finally! 

 

Practically speaking, Brandi Alexander is part spoken word, part stand-up comedy gone radically wrong.  Brandi Alexander is an assault on rape and a cry for righteous anger as it demands to have the word rape horrify once again, instead of lull us back to the everyday. It allows space for a women’s rage, instead of asking her to forgive. It demonstrates what it might mean to have a woman playing a man’s game. And it explores how so much anger might be necessary to get to the laughter, or vice versa.

El Diablo

"You ever want to set fire to yourself? I do. That's one of my newer realizations."

El Diablo is a solo show for a woman on the run, for a woman who has killed her husband when she was just trying to change her silly little self. It's a prayer from someone who has given up on God and is looking for a last resort. It's an open call for a bad southern accent, a great vintage dress and an opportunity to use whiskey as holy water.
