David’s Friend is the story of a crazy friendship in 1980s New York City -- a restless city during a reckless time. It’s a comic odyssey about cruising, disco, drag queens, strippers, sex, love, loss, and AIDS, told with music, videos, costumes, characters, tall tales and torrid truths.
“A feisty and funny one-woman show” - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“The beauty of “David’s Friend” is, you didn’t have to be there. Burns was, and she brings it alive for the rest of us.” - Marc Miller, NY Theatre Guide
"Nora is leading the charge out of our collective PTSD with love, humor and pelvic thrusts." - Ann Magnuson
“A potent performance about the passing of a great era, beautifully captured, with wells of compassion and funniness.” - Sandra Bernhard
