In this new musical tragicomedy, one man's casual obsession with the architecture and culture of coat checkrooms ensnares him in a desperate struggle between employment agents, maitre 'd’s, lovesick podiatrists, low-budget contractors, and paraphilic playboys. A Check-Room Romance is the third theater collaboration between cartoonist Ben Katchor (Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer, and The Jew of New York) and composer Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion), following The Rosenbach Company, and The Slug Bearers of Kayrol Island, and features musicians and singers surrounded by Katchor's projected drawings and animations.

Musicians and Singers:
Mark Mulcahy
Dave Trenholm

Flora Reed
Sound design: Dan Richardson

A Check-Room Romance
was commissioned by The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers
