A zany tribute to all the muscles of the body and then some. Dr. Nickie Nom, acclaimed anatomical forensic surgical specialist and poet, gives a reading from her book of poems, Namely Muscles. The reading goes hilariously awry as Dr. Nom finds herself entangled by “Psoas, The Tender Bender,“ ”Gluteus to My Ears,” “Just the Meat,” and many more. Playwright: Claire Porter. Show image by Eleanora Alberto. Recommended for: adults, theatre community, yoga lovers. Links: artist, video.
