A New Cyberpunk Musical Comedy - 2010: Our Hideous Future: The Musical! (Providence, RI)

It’s the way, far future, AD 2010, and it’s a bad time to be human. Freedom fighter Kate Brick plans a final strike against the Artas, artificial life forms who control humankind through torture, brainwashing, and Foursquare. Can Kate and her sometime-lover Dehnise Compuserve make a difference, or is it already too late? "2010: Our Hideous Future" is a synthpop-infused, queer-friendly musical comedy homage to the great dystopian classics of the 1980s and '90s. It features brilliant riffs on classics like “Blade Runner,” “Max Headroom,” and “The Matrix,” and delightfully twisted tunes like "Near Futuristic Dystopia!" and "Bangor Boogie.” Tickets ($10) are available online or at the door.

And the priest took us into the sacristy and the job, of all things, was to dig a grave in the yard..."

It's almost Halloween! If you're in the NYC area, I'd like to invite you to "The Weir," a play of spooky tales from Ireland. Just $15 fro MeFite's (see "more inside" for details). "Conor McPherson's The Weir is easily one of the most celebrated new plays of the past 20 years ... Folding Chair Classical Theatre's remounting of this lovely and elegiac play is an excellent opportunity to catch a faithful rendition of this sometimes chilling, sometimes sentimental piece that appears to be entrenching itself into the modern Western Canon ... I was glad to see the script as well served as it was." -- nytheatre.com [more inside]

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]

Righteous Money at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Following a successful tour to Germany’s VOICES OF CHANGE Festival (Bielefeld, Berlin), New York theatre company WOLF 359 bring their hit RIGHTEOUS MONEY to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Dishing out advice on deal making, stock buying and sleeping with your assistant, a sexually rapacious and insanely rich TV provocateur takes on the tanking economy. In this solo financial tour de force, host CJ takes us on a tour of distressed investing, financial derivatives, and the inside of the banker's soul, all in a quest to make Righteous Money. But what begins as a send-up of financial gurus and shady I-bankers becomes a searing exploration of the fiscal crisis and the state of America today. www.RighteousMoney.tv [more inside]
