Gizel Jimenez is currently making her Off Broadway debut,
starring as Malina in the American primer of Unseamly
Now extended through November 8.
The Standard is a popular international clothing company known for their risqué billboards of nearly-naked models. It is during Malina’s time there as a store manager that she faces harassment and assault. She is desperate to press charges, but her CEO boss, Ira, paints a picture of an opportunistic young girl he practically had to fight off. In a sexually-charged industry - what is ethical? What is the truth? And who is really getting hurt? You decide.
