Refreshingly, it isn't what they do that these women are concerned with, but how they are going to keep doing it in an era of supply-side economics. The group is losing ground to the younger prostitutes who roam the same New York City park as they do, and their regular clients, who are on fixed incomes, can't afford the pleasure of their company as often as before. Things are starting to look bleak, but these women haven't walked the streets for 40 years without learning a few things about self-reliance and resiliency.
The women talk about the ins and outs of their profession (again, no pun intended) with blunt frankness, but for all of its anatomically correct language, the show is a lesson in Reaganomics, not sex education.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 4, 3 p.m. Starts: Oct. 26. Continues through Nov. 17, 2012
