(AVENEL, NJ) -- The Avenel Performing Arts Center (APAC) presents Penny Arcade on Wednesday, June 12 at 8:00pm. Penny Arcade, New York’s undisputed queen of the underground and legendary avant-gardist, has performed Longing Lasts Longer a rock n’ roll blend of stand-up comedy and memoir, in over 28 cities around the world. Tickets are $29.50.
Longing Lasts Longer is a fierce, visionary and ultimately hopeful critique of New York’s slide from the “city that never sleeps” to the “city that can’t wake up.” Driven by her magnetic rock n’ roll energy, Penny Arcade’s razor-sharp satire is mixed live to euphoric soundscapes inspired by four decades of pop culture. A blow against the golden age of stupidity, this is a passionate and exuberant performance anthem where you can think, laugh and dance at the same time!
