Eddie and Dave
by Amy Staats

“Mind-bending glee! In the world of glam metal, peacocks of any sex can prance to the earsplitting sound of power chords.”

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Eddie and Dave is a gender-bending new play by Amy Staats about hubris, friendship, family, fame, musical genius and what happens when the person you need is the one you find most irritating. Some plays examine the deepest questions of life. This is the play that asks: “What the !@#$ happened to Van Halen at the 1996 VMA’s?” 

Amy Staats is an actor, writer and 2017-2018 Tow Playwriting Residency through the Atlantic Theater Company. Her plays include: Eddie and Dave, Hands, I Hope She’ll Be Okay, and Throws of Love

“Smart & funny! Its masterstroke is to cast women as the band, a choice that effortlessly transforms the play into a vivacious dissertation on the performance of gender. In a better world, this is what a Broadway jukebox musical would look like.”

Rollo Romig, The New Yorker
