What's Underground About Marshmallows
- Genre: Drama
- Release Date: 5/25/2010
What's Underground About Marshmallows? was the second part of Ron Vawter's highly acclaimed theater piece Roy Cohn/Jack Smith, first staged in 1989 in New York City and then performed nationally until Vawter's death from AIDS in 1994. Jack Smith was a vanguard underground filmmaker, who was sometimes hailed as the father of performance art. In his later films and performances, such as the one re-imagined here, Smith explored a deceptively frivolous camp aesthetic that transformed bits of Hollywood B movies into socio-political critique and high art. This complete, uninterrupted performance of Jack Smith's Marshmallows was recorded at New York's legendary performance venue, the Kitchen - it was Vawter's last performance.
