In a play about Time Travel by J Holtham with New York Madness at IATI Theatre tonight
Two Workshop Showings of my play Leave the Balcony Open at Ensemble Studio Theatre
gorgeousTaps and the Reality Show is an emergent meta-narrative that has taken the form of pop music, church services, talk radio and social media reality tv. Spearheaded by the sugary sadism of Genevieve Belleveau, aka gorgeousTaps, the shifting cast of real life characters engages in parodic and satirical tropes to examine the sincerity (or lack thereof) in daily rituals and the ecstatic mundanity of human desire. For this provocative presentation, gTaps is joined by co-conspirators Alexandra Rosenberg, Ann Hirsch, Mike Bushnell and some surprise test subjects. They will examine previously employed methods and predict the potentialities of future developments with you, the instant collaborators™, as their missionary muses.
