SACRED FOOLS | MAINSTAGE 1999 - WANT'S UNWISHED WORK
· Comedy Direction, Alexander Yannis Stephano
Written by Kirk Wood Bromley - Directed by Alexander Yannis Stephano Intellectual analysis is pitted against lusty love as director Alexander Yannis Stephano whips this shamelessly funny ensemble into a breathless gallop. Director Alexander Yannis Stephano has staged and paced this show at break-neck speed and manages to maintain a sense of bizarro style that is quite charming. Alexander Yannis Stephano has come to Los Angeles from New York and has brought him the ‘comedy for smart people’ "Want’s Unwished Work" which will open at the Sacred Fools Theatre on February 25. Alexander was in the original New York cast, but now he has taken on the task of directing the comedy of Kirk Wood Bromley. "Directing and acting, though of course they intermingle, are quite separate. When I act I must only think of one character but when I direct I have to get into the minds of all 18 characters," said Alexander, rushing between rehearsals. The play employs a framing device of an adoring husband who writes a play as a birthday present for his exhausted, overworked wife. The contents of this frame are displayed as she sleeps. Alexander was born in Philadelphia though his family came from Heraklion, Crete. He returns often to see his family, his mother and stepfather, who is a medical professor at the University of Crete, and his younger brother who is a student at that university. Alexander has an impressive list of credits as an actor. He has worked in many New York and regional theaters and has a level of professional training unusual in this film business city. Six months ago he came here resolved to break into film and television and it was Los Angeles’ gain.

SACRED FOOLS | MAINSTAGE 2004 - Midnight Brainwash Revival
directed by Alexander Yannis Stephano
Photo: Alexander Yannis Stephano Written in iambic pentameter, punny, loaded with eccentric characters, directed with vibrancy by Alexander Yannis Stephano, the production allows its audience not one moment of downtime--and that's going quite a distance, even for those of us who think we've seen it all. Director Alexander Yannis Stephano has commanded the stage. Sacred Fools Theatre Company presents Midnight Brainwash Revival, an original work by Kirk Wood Bromley (the only contemporary American playwright working consistently in iambic pentameter) with direction by Alexander Yannis Stephano. Alexander Yannis Stephano doesn't have much time for his favorite sport, swimming. He has just completed work on directing 'Midnight Brainwash Revival' at the Sacred Fools Theater Company, a multi-level (19 actors with many playing different roles) fast-paced comedic tour-de-force of wit and wisdom which revels in confusion both sexuality and romantic. It defends the ecology against rapacious developers, satirizes fake religious revelations and packs all that and more into two and a half hours. Among the talented cast, Christopher Paul Hart stands out, proving that a quiet, rapier-like delivery is always effective. For something different, director Stephano will accompany the NBC production team when it covers the events at the Olympic Games. This is a double bonus as he will be in Athens for an extensive family gathering (his father is from the north of Greece; his mother, Athens); not the least of his joys will be to show off his and his wife Therese's 18-month son Apollo. And of course he intends to get some swimming in.
