David you are killing me
David of Zeitgeist Theater, of whom I speak often, just finished his latest production. I don't know how the man manages it all. He no sooner finishes one play then he is holding auditions for another and then rehearsals etc, etc. But manage he does! His latest play Good Television was really spectacular. It is a play about reality television (think tv show Intervention) but not really. It goes behind the scenes of the show which is about meth and alcohol addiction. It is a very powerful story where the bottom line for the producers of the show is 'ratings.' The actors do a wonderful job of sounding authentically Southern and desperate trailer park residents. The playwright, Rod McLachlan, is an actor who made his Off Broadway debut as a playwright with this play. Kudos David!
