Craters

Synopsis: Meet the film team responsible for staging the Apollo 11 moon landing. Or at least, partially responsible—until their lead actor Neil was whisked away at the last minute when NASA decided to go in a different direction. Now, director Sylvia and her crew are being held prisoner in a classified warehouse in the middle of nowhere America, with nothing to do but make a documentary about their thwarted attempt at creating the footage that would inspire the world. Craters is an exercise in fact-finding, (re)enactment, and the power of simulation.

Craters is being presented as part of the Corkscrew Theater Festival which showcases original productions by early-career theater artists who are creating work through robust and/or innovative collaborations and advocates for underrepresented artists and viewpoints.

Wake Up Call
Dec
9
to Dec 18

Wake Up Call

Synopsis: In the midst of an unexpected double shift (on Christmas Eve, no less) a group of degenerate hotel employees stumble their way through an unusual night of service. It’s a “coming of age when you’re already of age” story. Sometimes it takes a miracle to grow the hell up. ke Up Call s an 90 minute contemporary play set in the lobby of a luxury boutique hotel in New York City. In the respect that hotels are transitional places for the guests, the same is true for the people that work there. Navigating through the misadventures of the evening, from outlandish guests to unpredictable coworkers, we follow their journey into adulthood. Sort of.

Racioppo is sharply funny, giving out a natural charm that never seems dickish, even when he screams at people parking in the “no parking zone” (some truly funny moments happen with him literally screaming at cars we can’t see and then ending with “Happy Holidays...”).
— The Arts Wire Weekly
The most stellar aspect of Wake Up Call is undoubtedly how well the writing meshes with the chemistry of the actors... Racioppo and Gebauer’s bromance is particularly engaging, with their “I like my women like I like my…” exchanges generating constant laughs.

A Valentine's Day Pep Talk for Dudes

Sure, Valentine's Day is a little overrated, but how could I say no when my friend Amy Kersten asked me to be a part of this short comedic sketch demonstrating best practices for evoking a male's enthusiasm for Valentine's Day.  

Enjoy and Happy Valentine's Day.... if you're into that kind of thing.

Untameable

There are things more important than love / Name them / Diamonds

Synopsis: There is a diamond as big as your fist, as heavy as your heart, and touring through Buenos Aires, Argentina. It's time to steal it. Or it's time to keep it safe. 

Pitting diamond heist against museum intrigue,Untameable follows the story of two young women: one trying to repatriate an old jewel and the other trying to keep old nemeses at bay. The audience is free to wander the space and pick which side of the story to follow.Untameable offers an immersive romp between a criminal den and a modern museum, where the audience, like the characters, must decide between love and diamonds, honesty and victory.  Untameable is an investigation into what we will do to achieve our magnum opus and what gets lost in the winning.

With moments of tension within the two factions, and freewill given to the audience, Untameable makes you question the tactics of viewing... a world of magic, mystery, and love; a world that one will want to experience over and over again.
— Stage Buddy
Multifaceted as diamonds and complex and daring as a heist, Untameable is an adventure well worth joining.
