Bitch, Please

The Paradox of Choice isn't just a geek-hot book by Barry Schwartz; it's why decision-making hurts. So many terrific options, you can't choose what to pass up -- because of soul-crushing regret. So do you streamline your wardrobe, find a restaurant with two menu items, or embrace the glorious mess? As hedonists, we recommend the latter, and A Bitch in Time, with eight solo female performances, is the kind of buffet we favor.

Space 55's Kim Porter cuts to the chase about why Bitch, originally a quick and dirty fundraiser for the theater, is back: "It's easy to produce; it doesn't take up rehearsal space --" We interrupt to tell you to snag a seat now, before the masses beat you to it. 'Cause you will regret missing the wide-ranging styles of Porter, Leslie Barton, and the new bitches, including Dilcia Yañez-Rokusek, Genevieve Rice, Beth May, and Angel Zingpowowski.
