Nico: Underground,

The off-Broadway sensation brought to The Loft in Portsmouth, NH over a weekend in April of 2016 was a benefit for local non-profits: The Cochecho Valley Humane Society, Freedom Cafe and Haven. Hundreds experienced a trip into the world of some of the most amazing and creative musical artists in history.

New York City Actress Tammy Faye Starlite performs one woman shows (with musical accompaniment) of famous ladies of rock and roll art scenes in the 1960’s and 70’s. Acclaimed by the New York Times, Rolling Stone magazine and other publications, her performances have had extended runs in Off-Broadway theatres in New York, as well as New Orleans and in Los Angeles. And now Portsmouth, NH!

Check out Tammy Faye Starlite as she portrays the icon, Warhol muse and Velvet Underground centerpiece in the world’s first and only Sturm und Drang jukebox musical. Born Christina Paffagen in pre­war Cologne, Nico became known as the Teutonic Chanteuse of Warhol and the art scene of Greenwich Village in the 1960s. In preparing for her performance, Starlite spent the better part of four years developing the script, drawing from videos, interviews, biographies, and rare recordings as well as first-person interviews with those who knew Nico best. Featuring the music of The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, The Doors and so much more.

She also performs a one-woman show off-Broadway as Marianne Faithfull.
