    Theater: Public Theater / Delacorte Theater in Central Park, New York, NY,

    Synopsis: 

    Created in collaboration with NYC glam-punk band, Bambï, Goodbar blurs the boundaries between music and theater while tackling one of the most controversial cult artifacts of the '70s: Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Riffing wildly on the novel by Judith Rossner, Bambï & Waterwell crank the amps up to ten and launch a full frontal assault on modern myths of sex, independence and persona.
