"April Kidwell, as Nomi, is a wonder. She is tireless, fearless and performing circles around Elizabeth Berkley’s portrayal in the movie." -- The New York Times

"A tour de force. She is at once absolutely ridiculous and straightforwardly amazing.” -- Gawker

"A MUST-see performance... She is brilliant as Nomi Malone! BRILLIANT!" - Perez Hilton

Get up close and way too personal with one of cinema’s most enigmatic female antiheroes in the hilarious theatrical event I, NOMI. Written and performed by Off Broadway sensation April Kidwell, I, NOMI is a raunchy and ridiculously funny one-woman tribute to the feral heroine of SHOWGIRLS, Nomi Malone (as played in Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 film by Elizabeth Berkley) and a wickedly satisfying mashup of the destined-for-cult-status dark comedy I, TONYA. Featuring outrageous original songs and more than a few bombshells, this is a ferocious and empowering night of musical comedy for the #MeToo movement. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll paint your lips on way too big while having epileptic orgasms. And when all is said and done, you’ll walk away saying, “Nomi? No. ME.”

I, NOMI runs July 25 - 28 at 7pm at The Laurie Beechman Theater (inside West Bank Cafe at 407 West 42nd Street -- at Ninth Avenue, accessible from the A,C,E,N,R,V,F,1,2,3 trains at 42nd Street).
