THE GEEK AUTHORITY - Lorenzo Marchessi
“Rough Magic” written by Marnie Olson and directed by Francisco Roel.
It's “The Tempest” at the La Brea Tar Pits – with Anastasia Elfman, Alex G-Smith and Michael Guthrie. OMG - too funny! Anastasia knocked it out of the park with her transition and characterization of two personalities. She was fun and comically inventive with her actions and attitude. Alex was Anastasia's perfect foil as her comic timing was sharp and smart and these two just made me laugh in hysterics. Michael shinned as the crack dealer with such a precise twitch driven performance and hysterical responses. This really cracked me up!
“The Sound And The Furry” written by Tom Jones and directed by Andy Schultz.
It's “Macbeth” at the Los Angeles Zoo with Madeleine Kang, Sheen Midori and Jerry Chappell. Madeline and Sheen just did a wonderful cat and mouse game as reincarnated – opposite sexed former Kings in the afterlife. While trans-gendering Jerry is reincarnated as MacBeth's wife in charge of the afterlife's HR duties and gives a colorfully demanding list of HR do's and don'ts to the newly acquired in purgatory. This was smart and very funny.
