Following last month’s hilariously successful premiere, Joe’s Pub presents the return of Justin Elizabeth Sayre is a 40-Year-Old Woman from acclaimed playwright and performer Justin Elizabeth Sayre on Sunday, October 16 at 9:30 PM. The show will take place at Joe’s Pub (425 Lafayette Street, at Astor Place in New York City).
Tickets are available HERE.
The show – a deep dive into self-acceptance, the beauty of finally seeing yourself, and a whole lot of dirty jokes – is a mixture of stories and observations with a Sayre-ish slant that has become a staple of downtown. It’s an evening of hilarity, celebrating the stylish women of yesterday, but also a path toward being a “40-Year-Old Woman” all on your own. Regardless of age, race, gender, ability. To Sayre, being a “40-Year-Old Woman,” is a state of mind.
“This show is intensely personal, and yet so out there.” Sayre says. “It’s about who am I, certainly, and who I’ve always been, but finally becoming the person I am. I see the “40-Year-Old Woman,” as an archetype. Those stylish, determined, and confident women that have always fascinated and delighted gay audiences. Myself certainly. But how do you live like that? How do you become that confident? That grand? That self-possessed? Writing this show has shown me a path. A path that I’m still on, but a path that I’m excited to share.”
