News: "Before the Drugs Kick In" Extends Again, Comes to Theaterlab in March

After an amazing run in Edinburgh, 10 performances at UNDER St. Marks, and 15 at the Court Square Theater, Mike Lemme's Before the Drugs Kick In, performed by NYC comedian and actress Maria DeCotis, will be extending for a third time in New York City. 

In our review of this excellent show, which takes the outward form of a stand-up set, we described it as inviting "us inside the mind of one woman for a riveting, empathetic, and darkly funny exploration of mental health and its (mis)treatments and stigmas, especially where women are concerned; the oppressiveness and isolation of the suburbs; and what Betty Friedan termed the feminine mystique."

Before the Drugs Kick In will be coming to Theaterlab in Manhattan for 8 performances starting on Friday, March 15th at 7pm.

Run time: 70 minutes, no intermission
