Recession Special Double Bill

The winner of the 2008 NY International Fringe Festival for Outstanding Play Sailor Man will begin preview performances tonight at 8 PM in the Green Room at the Theatres in Greenwich Village, NYC. It will be followed by Rumspringa. The double bill opens officially on 11 February 2009. Tickets are also available through Telecharge, $39 for both shows or $25 for one.

According to the press release, Sailor Man is "a darkly comic tribute to the exploits of a beloved spinach-eating seaman. Created by Ryan Iverson and Scott Peterman and directed by Peter James Cook with fight choreography by Jacob Grigolla-Rosenbaum, the fast, furious and bloody hour of spinach-fueled mayhem features the writers in the respective roles of Sailor Man and The Brute with Lauren Blumenfeld as Olive. Startlingly violent, it serves up Saturday morning cartoons, Tarantino-style."

Rumspringa, "
written and directed by Peter Zinn and featuring Jim Boerlin, C. S. Drury, Kirsty Meares and Micky Sumner, is a dark comedy that explores the desire in all of us to experience life outside our ‘normal’ lives. Several generations face their own lives during a Rumspringa rave in an Indiana cornfield filled with rebellious Amish teenagers."
