Comedian Kate Berlant returns to NYC with an encore engagement of her acclaimed comedy show, Kate, at the Connelly Theater. Get Kate Berlant: Kate tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
Kate is a comedy show about Berlant's life, in which she traces the key events that got her to her current place in life. This current place and time is when she will reveal a truth that she's kept hidden until now. Berlant is deliberately vague about further details on what Kate is about, but she said in a statement, in part, "All my previous work has been a pale shadow, a humiliation, an impotent suggestion always gesturing toward, yet never quite arriving ... until now."
During the show, Berlant not only plays herself, but multiple other characters that represent key people in her life's journey.
Berlant has built an acclaimed comedy career worldwide, on both stage and screen. She has performed her comedy routines at festivals like Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, and New York Comedy Festival; Kate marks her first time performing live in New York in 10 years.
"I can't wait to welcome you into my home, which is the theatre," she also said in her statement about Kate off Broadway. "Although I haven't been home in a long time, it feels good to be back and I'm so grateful they kept the lights on for me. Although it is forbidden to take your shoes off in my home, I hope you will still allow yourself to shed a layer—to become vulnerable and receptive to the possibility of transformation."
