Yes. That’s right. It’s Mila Golubov week. It’s March 11th and I found myself skipping down Ludlow St. like a Sochi ice dancer. I’M THAT EXCITED. Word on the street was shadow puppetry might be involved. Do you know what? It was.
With well-coiffed director Brian Gillespie as our special guest, Mila took us down a dark, robotic noir turn where shadow wolves and bears spoke for the inner nature of the denizens of a kind-of-future. The play–a kiss before dying battery: a shadow play. I never thought of androids and film noir together. Now they’re motherfucking inextricable. It was future-tastic, con-or-be-conned, and downright stichomythic (Look it up, people).
Notes of note:
- Dicks should be Private Dicks
- In the continuing, yet unplanned Lather, Rinse, Repeat Continuity Project 2.0, this week’s play was once again linked by total happenstance to the play before it. This time, by virtue of the delicious and fruity mai tai.
- “Then what are we doing here.” “Rubbing parts.” Didn’t I tell you? Robosapiens and film noir! Like Peaches and Herb!
- Mike Pitsikoulis basically is a robotic bartender.
- Carson Lee basically is the most handsome Dick in every room.
Stay tuned for the next Weekly Round-Up; a very special homecoming for our very own Lauren Ferebee, playing hookey from her residency in South Carolina, to treat us to her newest stack of tremendous. That puts the happy in a 5:00pm – 9:00m $3 pint happy hour(s) at Local 138.
