I've been kinda overfocused on Contemporary Art Month, about which I have more to say. But here's a theatre event happening tomorrow that I think will be absolutely fantastic. If you're at-all interested in acting, you could do no better in this town than collaborating with AtticRep, a troupe who've put on consitently challenging, edgy, intelligent work.

Looka here:

This exceptionally unique night of performance features Gloria Sanchez, who was amazing in "The Goat, or Who is Sylvia" this Spring, Jump-Start's fab S.T. Shimi, and more people of talent and amazingness than you could shake a stick at. You might incorporate stck-shaking into your karaoke routine just to see.

Marisela Barrera, who's hosting the event, sez:

"We'll have chingos performances, food, and yes-my attack dogs will be in the laundry room and you will be safe! If you are interested in the reading of Lydia-that will in fact start at 9pm with casting on the spot. The read will be about 15-20 minutes of the full-length play. The line-up is *fantastic* and we're all hoping you will turn out to support. If you get that performance bug after a few “House Delites” you can wow! us with your signature karaoke song."

Also, I talked to Rick Frederick, who confirmed that YES, this reading/casting-on-the-spot is for next season's AtticRep production of Lydia, also that he'll be putting on an excerpt from an upcoming production of Greg Barrios's play IDJ.


Did you notice there will be chalupas, too?

Oh my goodness.
