Event Description

"It's hard to justify seeking any other form of entertainment on your Saturday night."-Claudia La Rocco , The New York Times

"Would you totally go out and see some of the underground artsy dancing and acting that New York offers so much of, if only you had an ironclad guarantee that the performance wasn't going to be boring and sucky? Well, today is your lucky day."
- Emily Gould, Gawker.com

Catch & the creators of Our Hit Parade meet Kanye West!

WHY WON'T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!! is a group show inspired by Kanye West's ground-breaking, "Thom Yorke in the Strip Club" crossover pop album 808s & Heartbreak. Conceived by Brendan Kennedy and presented by Neal Medlyn and Catch in association with Performance Space 122, the evening-length performance will feature work by a vast array of downtown superstars showing pieces inspired by each song from the album, much as the Joffrey Ballet's (in)famous Billboards choreographed the songs of Prince.
