THE TRAGEDY OF MARIA MACABRE appearing March 2nd at Dixon Place!

For you New Yorkers, this Wednesday will mark the full-length theatrical premiere of Rachel Klein's THE TRAGEDY OF MARIA MACABRE, a morbid fantasia of movement and dance. Rachel conceived, directed, choreographed, and costumed the piece, and I helped co-write the scenario, did the sound design, and last year I made a short film adaptation. It also features original music from Borut Krzisnik (THE TULSE LUPER SUITCASES) and stage management by Marina Steinberg. It stars Abigail Hawk (CBS' BLUE BLOODS), Michael Porsche (LA ENFERMA), Elizabeth Stewart (AENIGMA), Preston Burger (GO-GO KILLERS!), Danielle Marie Fusco (STAGE BLOOD IS NEVER ENOUGH), Freddy Mancilla (GO-GO KILLERS!), Megan O'Connor (STAGE BLOOD IS NEVER ENOUGH), Brian Rubiano (GO-GO KILLERS!), and Eric Schmalenberger (THE VOLUPTUOUS HORROR OF KAREN BLACK).

The plot is as follows: Upon dying, Maria Macabre is not granted eternal slumber, but instead a whirling, kaleidoscopic carnival of horrors: a morbid funhouse where humanity is stripped away and a permanent place in the gruesome chorus line is all but assured. Flavorpill calls Rachel "a mistress of the macabre" and BeaconPass calls it "darkly glamorous" and proposes that "rarely do you get to witness someone else’s nightmares — and rarely are they so vivid." See also: Backstage Pass with Lia Chang, New York Cool, Time Out New York, and the Village Voice.
