Jill Sobule's F*ck 7th Grade has extended for a second time Off-Broadway. Originally slated to run October 12 through November 6 at The Wild Project, the production has now run through its first extension, and will continue through November 19.
With music, lyrics, and story by Sobule, the musical memoir traces her struggles with sexuality in the lead up to her success as a songwriter in the 1990s where she penned the original "I Kissed A Girl," as well as the song "Supermodel" for the Clueless soundtrack.
In addition to Sobule, F*ck 7th Grade features a book by Liza Birkenmeier, music direction by Julie Wolf, percussion by Kristen Ellis-Henderson, and bass by Nini Camps. F*ck 7th Grade is directed by Lisa Peterson.
In the years since Sobule's mainstream success, the singer songwriter has returned to her autobiographical roots, with songs centered on her struggles with depression and anorexia, her Jewish heritage, and her complicated relationships with gender norms and sexuality. Her 2009 album California Years was fan funded, making Sobule an early pioneer of the crowdfunded art movement.
F*ck 7th Grade's creative team includes scenic designer Rachel Hauck, lighting designer Oona Curley, sound designer Elisabeth Weidner, and costume designer Gina Ruiz. Michelle Navis is the stage manager for the production, and Liz Weber is the audio engineer.
