DEADLIFT is a brand new show exploring what it is to be weird and Jewish, dealing with grief, and dressing up your father’s ashes for Halloween. Classic, no? Directed by Seattle director Zandi Carlson and written by Aviva Pressman, DEADLIFT is told through storytelling, live visual art creation, and song. The show is bound to make you feel guilty about how much you’re laughing.
