It’s time to check in for The Appointment, the critically acclaimed and outrageous musical satire singing and dancing through the absurdity and hypocrisy of the American abortion debate. From the acclaimed company Lightning Rod Special (Underground Railroad Game), The Appointment was named to the “Best Theater of 2019” lists in The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Time Out NY.
“THE APPOINTMENT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPROBABLE NEW MUSICALS IN NEW YORK. IT’S ALSO ONE OF THE MOST ENLIGHTENING.”
— BEN BRANTLEY, NEW YORK TIMES
Using cutting humor, catchy songs, and some very lively fetuses, The Appointment unpacks the many systems that disempower groups of people from making informed reproductive decisions with hilarious, devastating, and hilariously devastating results. Returning to New York for a limited run for the first time since the overturning of Roe v Wade, this “thoughtful and profoundly imaginative show concludes in a silence that is all the more eloquent for the sound and the fury that preceded it.” - The New York Times
