“[Athena] can my use my image whenever and however she wants.” – Lady Gaga at SXSW
Tribute artist Athena Reich stars as Lady Gaga in #ARTBIRTH, an outrageous evening of art and pop. It will be presented February 13 & 27 and March 13 & 27 at Laurie Beechman Theatre.
LADY GAGA: #ARTBIRTH combines vaudevillian comedy with ARTPOP outrageousness. The premise is that Lady Gaga is pregnant and she has decided to give birth in front of her most devoted fans — the ultimate performance art piece. Full of dancing, singing and barfing, #ARTBIRTH will revolutionize the way you think about babies, motherhood and life after birth. Come and see Gaga’s baby be Born This Way.
Athena Reich is a crowd favorite who’s received acclaim from “little monsters” and even Gaga herself. The concept behind Pregnant Gaga was birthed when Athena starting undergoing infertility treatments and wondered, “What if Gaga was pregnant?”
