March 2013 is going to be one “ridiculous” month for me. Ridiculous Theatre that is! First off I’m thrilled to be reunited with the incomparable Everett Quinton, who will be playing the title role in a staged reading of Medea by Charles Ludlam that I am directing for the amazing Phoenix Theatre Ensemble, on Monday, March 18 at 8 pm. Everett (alternating with Black-Eyed Susan) created the role when he took over leadership of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company after Ludlam’s passing in 1987. Tickets available here.
Then I am going to fully stage – for one night only, Sunday, March 24 7pm – Kitchenette by Ronald Tavel, one of the first “ridiculous theater” plays ever! Adapted from Tavel’s scenario for the Andy Warhol film “Kitchen”, Kitchenette hilariously spoofs the making of an avant-garde movie. Tickets available here.
