Comedy in the Afternoon: A Revue in Two Acts with Music and Dance will receive its Equity World Premiere in May. The show is written and directed by Del Fidanque.
Welcome to our world, where we will help you to open your minds and hearts! Comedy In The Afternoon is an original theatre experience that celebrates Daylight and the Human Family. Within its text, Comedy In The Afternoon makes use of seven languages: Bulgarian, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean and Yiddish. But don't worry! When there's a foreign language spoken, one of the actors always translates, so you'll never be lost! Dance is incorporated throughout, interpreting the text and supporting the action while our orchestra plays Beethoven, Mozart, and Paganini to name a few!
Born Before 1950 and still care? Join us! Visit with George Burns, Truman Capote, Nixon and Kissinger's alter ego, in the form of his twin sister, Henrietta. Go in and out of present and past with updated bulletins about Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, FEMA, Congressional mandates, Indian Point, Michelle Bachman's insistence on holding onto her trance-like state, Shopping at 45 W. 45th St. Jack's World in NYC.
