Face the Muses

If you’ve noticed a resurgence of flannel shirts and Doc Martens, you’re not in a time warp to the early 1990s -- it’s the cycle of what’s old being new again. Space 55 Theater’s solo performance extravaganza A Bitch in Time abides and goes way old school on April 11 and 12.

A Bitch in Time has been tops in featuring awesome women performing solo pieces that incorporate comedy, theater, dance, poetry, and almost any other discipline you can think of. In its latest edition, each performer has been assigned one of nine Muses from Ancient Greek mythology to inspire them. Lucky audiences will see Muses such as Calliope (representing epic poetry), Melpomene (tragedy), and Thalia (comedy) meet performers including Leslie Barton, Anthony Desamito, and Harmony DeLeon.

A Bitch in Time: 9 Muses sasses up Space 55, 636 East Pierce Street in Phoenix, at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $10. For more info, visit

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; April 11-12, 8 p.m. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Dec. 7, 2013
