I saw Forbidden Zone last week, but didn’t have time to write up a full review before heading off to vacation. When I get back I may do a bigger, for realsies review, but do yourself a favor and go see this play this weekend at Sacred Fools. It has a dwarf with a wakazachi, boobies, kissing, frogmen, big-huge-devil-cock-with-severed-head-testicles, awesome music, great performances and simply brilliant costume design. Sacred Fools is one of my favorite theatre companies in Los Angeles and this is the closing weekend for this great production. What’s most important about it is that it’s fun. You will go to the theatre and enjoy yourself and smile.
Opening this weekend is a show that I’m looking forward to: TAPE by Stephen Belber at EXPO at 4321 Atlantic Ave. in Long Beach. I’m not too familiar with the play or the venue, but the actors in it are artists who I greatly respect and if they’re doing a show together for the first time in years, I’m definitely going to go see this play in a few weeks. You can reserve tickets for this show at 562-639-2659 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Hollywood Fringe Festival kicked off last night. I’m excited about this festival. I was always jealous of my friends who took part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Many of these shows are U.S. or world premieres and there are performances throughout the day. The Hollywood Fringe Festival‘s website offers a comprehensive schedule that you can search through by both date and a venue, so it’s easy to find a play. Bitter Lemons has been doing a great job covering this festival.
Also, I don’t think I’ll be able to go see this show, but Sacred Fools is now staging Forbidden Zone: Live in the 6th Dimension. I’ve head great things about this production and wish I could make it. Check it out yourself and let me know what you think.
