DADA. MATH ROCK. TRASH DRAG CARTOON REALNESS.
Coming from the twisted minds of local theatermakers Dylan Hunter (NUMB, The Cradle Will Rock, Macbeth) and Evan Spigelman (Faustus, The Lily’s Revenge, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), CREEP CUTS is a cartoon cloud of dada and drag. CREEP CUTS stars chaos demons Mz. Asa Metric (Spigelman) and Mqr. En Between (Hunter) as New Orleans’ premier electro-cabaret-dada-freak-drag-extra-hyphenated-caffeinated-duo-from-out-of-the-blue-o. Together they combine sketch comedy, lip synch and original electronic music to create a wholly new form of drag cabaret to confound the senses.
Joining Mz. Asa and Mqr. En is Kimberly Clark (Chris Giarmo), who comes to the Mudlark with the KARAOKE HOUR WITH KIMBERLY CLARK! Starting an hour before CREEP CUTS, KARAOKE HOUR lets the audience up on stage to dress in their finest drag and sing their hearts out. KARAOKE HOUR gives audience members a chance to watch and kiki with Kimberly, one of YouTube’s most popular drag sensations, live on stage.

Dylan Hunter (Mqr En Between) is a performer and musician. He is a proud member of Goat In The Road Productions and makes weird noises, both to himself and for projects that sometimes pay him. He’d kill for a new car stereo system, but not really because he feels that killing is wrong. He loves all things and feels that each should have equal representation in government. He was recently seen on stage in GRP’s re-mount of their original show, Numb. He is particularly flat-footed.
Evan Spigelman (Mz. Asa Metric) is a performer, light designer. co-founder of New Orleans performance collective Skin Horse Theater and of LOUD, the New Orleans Queer Youth Theater. Recent Performance credits include On the Verge (In Good Company), Taylor Mac’s 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Pomegranate Arts) and Faustus (Lux et Umbra, Big Easy Award 2015 Evan has worked with the Ontological Hysteric Theater and Incubator Arts Project in New York City, Live Arts Bard, and the Design Wing of the Great Plains Theater Conference in Omaha, Nebraska. evanspigelman.com
