Next week I'll be joining Sister Sylvester for their upcoming production of DEAD BEHIND THESE EYES: A KARAOKE PLAY. Here's the info from the Sister's website:
'Dead Behind These Eyes' is a performance in a karaoke room about pop music, love, and apathy. Three characters rail against the world, and mourn the big, bold important lives they were supposed to live, drowning their sorrows in booze, song, sex, and cigarettes. Using text inspired by John Osborn’s iconic play of dissatisfied youth, 'Look back In Anger', alongside lyrics from Britney Spears, Jeff Buckley, Prince and others, this piece explores political and social participation through the microcosm of the karaoke parlor.
‘Dead Behind These Eyes’ is a co-production with Abrons Art Center.It was performed in a workshop showing at Dixon Place in 2012, and again at Grace Exhibition Space later that year. Sing Sing karaoke hosted a two week workshop of the piece in April 2014 with an open rehearsal/ showing at the end of that time.
We run August 29-September 19th in Room 14 at Sing Sing Karaoke Bar, 81 Avenue A, between 5th and 6th Streets.
