June 14 - July 8
In this one-woman show written and performed by Cindy Keiter and set in her legendary sportscaster father, Les Keiter’s studio, Recreating Keiter follows the story of comedienne, Cindy Keiter, as she struggles to find comfort in her own skin. Cindy takes you from tom-boy teenager on the waves of Hawaii to New Yorker caught in the tides of emotional abuse. It takes her very foundation falling apart to find herself and to find her wife, Lory. They say baseball is like life played out on a field. Cindy strikes on the universality of our insecurities and celebrates the home run of claiming your sexuality. She channels her father and electrifies her story by taking the audience to an imaginary all-star, all-time baseball game in Brooklyn’s famous Ebbets Field!
