Justin Vivian Bond: The Return of Down on Creation – On Top of the World with The Carpenters

Joe's Pub

May 6, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18

Doors at 9PM
Show at 9:30PM

One story that downtown cabaret star Justin Vivian Bond likes to tell involves Bond’s seven-year-old self-singing The Carpenters’ “Superstar” at school during show-and-tell from behind the classroom TV set. Fast forward to the present and the performance artist and transgender trailblazer has finally transformed this lifelong passion for The Carpenters into a gorgeous full-length show. For this special evening at Joe's Pub, Mx Bond explores the extensive catalog of gender outlaw and body dysmorphia poster-girl Karen Carpenter, bringing a thoughtful new context to the troubled life of the ’70s icon.

The May 18th performance of Down on Creation – On Top of the World with The Carpenters is proudly sponsored by Showtime, as part of The Showtime Salon Series.  The Showtime Salon Series is a yearlong, curated series of monthly performances (at Joe's Pub) that celebrate LGBTQ+ communities and their creative expressions.
