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.
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
wife Therese's 18-month son Apollo.
And of course he
intends to get some swimming in.
