02 Sweat is also guilt? Shame?
03 Unworthiness in the form of beads?
04 Sweat is hunger—deliberate and able to cool you down a bit, while you try to forget this world not made for you quite.

06 When dying isn’t the end of the story
07 I think – I
08 think there is a story beyond.
09 And maybe Nippy knows that, too.
—The Whitney Album
Soho Rep presents the world premiere of multidisciplinary theater-maker and “imaginary historian” Jillian Walker’s The Whitney Album, a meditation on the artist’s relationship to Whitney Houston’s work and personal life, and perceptions of both in the American imagination. The production concludes a 2022-23 Soho Rep season consisting entirely of works commissioned by the organization.
