Show Recap - Vodka Shoes, 2.26.10

Leslie Goshko | Photo: Craig Ruttle

When Leslie Goshko describes the struggles of her youth in her new solo show Vodka Shoes, it helps for the sake of a compelling tale that she grew up in a wacky family where everyone battled a different set of problems. But what sets this show apart from others is how masterfully and economically Goshko handles every sentence, building up entertaining subplots that flush out a grand epic filled with looming failures and quiet victories.

NOTES

  • This isn't Leslie's first foray into storytelling.  Ardent Goshkoholics will recognize her from her previous solo show S.C.A.B.s Stick Together, as well as her frequent performances in The Liar Show, Speakeasy and her own monthly gig Sideshow Goshko.
  • The characters in her story begin as broad comical tropes that grow and develop over time, with intriguing histories that inform their denouements.
  • Usually when you hear about molestation within a family, it's cause for concern, but here, it's described as a fun game.
  • She dons a pair of stunning ruby-red slippers that whisk her off to a place much more wonderful and frightening than any fantasy world.
  • There’s one part where you may suddenly find yourself crying when you least expect it.

Vodka Shoes runs through SUN, MARCH 7 at Under St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place in the East Village) as part of the FRIGID New York Festival (Tickets).
