Jorj Has Two Great Ideas for You

Rik Deskin’s Eclectic Theater Company is currently presenting Moliere’s THE MISANTHROPE Friday thru Sunday at The Odd Duck.  A talented cast of youngish actors are busting their chops for director Kate Huisentruit.  We have been hearing their rehearsal shouts and screams at our Tuesday WARP meetings at the Duck.  The space now has two rehearsal rooms in addition to the theater.  The show has pace and energy.  Bryan Bender is morose in the lead and Adria Morticella is a knockout as Philinte and two other roles.  She reacts, mugs, plays men’s parts, has her mustach fall off and reminds me of a young Carol Burnette.  The message that it is better to be truthful in polite society is perhaps timeless.  It gets you nowwhere.  They need audience and deserve support. The play runs Friday Thru Sunday through February 12th.  www.eclectictheatercompany.org ”  – Jorj

John Kazanjian has staged a little known David Mamet farce titled NOVEMBER at the new New City Theater (The Shoebox Theater) at 1404 18th Ave. (near Union). The show runs weekends through February 12th.  Where else but Seattle can you see this play and CYMBELINE an equally obscure Shakepeare play.  What a city.  The plot of NOVEMBER has to do with the President of the United States pardoing two turkeys at Thanksgaiving and authorizing a lesbian marriage.  There is a Native American thrown into the mix.” –  Jorj
