Ars Nova, 511 W 54th St New York NY 10019

Inspired by the Japanese phenomenon of maid cafés, you become the customer as Etsuko and her fellow maids perform their superfun electronica pop just for you — about sex and youthfulness, consent and the performance of female sexuality. You be the male gaze, and we will be your beautiful dream. Welcome home!

Ars Nova is one of the leading theatres in New York supporting new work. They have supported and produced works such as Dave Malloy's THE GREAT COMET OF 1812, Bess Wohl's SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS, and UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME.

Ars Nova ANT Fest is four non-stop, throw-down weeks of live entertainment mayhem, featuring fresh material from the next wave of dynamic, indie-theater makers. All New Talent, all the time.


I AM THIS FOR YOU was developed at Rising Circle Rep, where Emily was one of the four INKtank playwrights to develop her play over 8 weeks.
