Reno Does Science at MASS MoCA in October
(September 21, 2000 -- North Adams, MA) According to The Village Voice, she "dive-bombs the audience with blazing humor, kamikaze-style." From NPR's The Infinite Mind to the brand new Bravo series, Citizen Reno, critically acclaimed iconoclast Reno has voiced an always-funny, often-scorching social commentary. Everyone has been raked over the coals from her parents to celebrities and politicians. Now comedien Reno turns her hilarious microscope to the Human Genome Project on Saturday, October 21, at 8 pm.
Described as a tornado with dark roots, Reno's physical one-woman routines have had her acting out everything from getting a mammogram to imitating a fax machine. She darts about the stage with flailing arms and mischievous eyes. Her HBO's Reno in Rage and Rehab specials were nominated for the Cable ACE Award for Best Writing for an Entertainment Special. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner cast Reno in his off-Broadway production, A Bright Room Called Day. Her acting credits also include Robert Redford's Quiz Show. The Boston Globe calls her "funny, original, energetic, politically incorrect, and anything but a victim."
Tickets to Reno Does Science are $24 for orchestra seats, $18 for mezzanine and $12 for students, and are available by calling the MASS MoCA Box Office at 413.662.2111 or online at www.massmoca.org. Tickets may also be purchased in person from 10 ö 6 daily at MASS MoCA at 87 Marshall St. in North Adams, Mass.
MASS MoCA, the largest center for contemporary visual and performing arts in the United States, is located on a 13-acre campus of renovated 19th-century factory buildings. MASS MoCA focuses on the work of artists charting new territory; works that blur the lines between visual and performing arts; and works that have seldom, or never, been exhibited because of physical demands such as scale, materials, and fabrication methods.
