Mt. Rushmore is a time travel, punk rock voyage that lands the audience in the throes of the rebellious Reagan era, where they help the performer on her quest to save her mother from a lifetime of grief and Conservatism. This wild quest is a true 1980s adventure - packed to the brim with espionage, unexpected friendships, and even a chance for redemption. Mt. Rushmore also features live original music with a band.
Mt Rushmore is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC)
