Streetcars & Futurism

Posted By on Sat, Sep 26, 2009 at 11:07 AM

For only having had two weeks with Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind's founding director Greg Allen the students at Rhodes College have developed a compelling original Neo-Futurist show. Incorporating elements of the confessional monologue, improv comedy, and Brechtian social commentary Neo-Futurism isn't going to be everybody's cup of Joe. But if the idea sounds interesting there are only two more chances to catch this unique performance. The show closes with an afternoon performance on Sunday, September 27.

Tonight I'm planning a trip to The Hattiloo Theatre to check out their production of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire. Ekundayo Bandele, the Hattiloo's founding Artistic Director is making a rare onstage appearance in the role of Stanley. His performance as Booth in Suzan-Lori Parks Top Dog/Underdog was one of the Highlights of the 2007/08 theater season.
