at Sky Rink, Chelsea Piers, Manhattan -- October 7 and 8, 1999
Yes, it's Greg Wittrock, back with an expanded version of his show and brainchild, "Freezer Burn"! Once a one-man show, this time around Wittrock is joined by skaters Steven Lu, Lisa Clinton, Britt Nhi Sarah, Heather Harrington, Scott Schwartz, and Jessica Randall.
Wittrock is the man who scandalized the "family-oriented" audience at the 1998 American Open with a masked drag program called "Whorita." Chagrined organizer Scott Williams had the announcer apologize to the stunned crowd. Heh. Whoops. "Whorita" makes her grand appearance in "Freezer Burn," along with fellow masked archetypes such as Cleana Spotless, Alex Inadequate, Demandra Now, Dougie Druggie and Penelope Pout -- channeled by Wittrock, of course.
Previous performances of "Freezer Burn" have gotten splendid reviews, such as this one from Time Out New York, October 9, 1997: "When a press release says that what it's selling defies categorization, it's probably best to back away slowly without making any sudden movements. But Greg Wittrock lives up to the advance word for his performance-art-on-ice piece."
