Are We Delicious? Puss in Boots
January 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30pm, repeating until January 20, 2018
This Event: May be of interest to the LGBTQ community
With only a pair of boots, wit, trickery and savoir faire a scraggly cat guides its hopeless owner from poverty to the Palace. Starting with the barest outline, a hand-picked ensemble of Madison’s best writers and performers will adapt this ancient tale into a modern, full-length comedy – starting from scratch just one week before opening night.
With its unique collaborative and creative process, Are We Delicious? makes each person an author, everyone writing scenes that are stitched together with feedback sessions, rewrites and rehearsals. It’s a mad dash to opening night as scripts are written, costumes sewn and lines learned in only 7 days. Packed with wit, wisdom and a lot of performance anxiety, it’s always fresh and a little dangerous, but when it comes together, a wonder to behold.
Although they haven’t yet written a word, Puss in Boots will be an adult comedy, not appropriate for children. At all.
Writer/Actors: Casem AbuLughod, Erica Berman, Trevin Gay, Amber McReynolds, and David Pausch
Directors: Tony Trout and Matt Sloan
Designers: Erin Baal (set), Laurie Everitt (costumes & props), Phil Koenig (lights)
