The Curse Of The Mystic Renaldo The - 2007, 3LD Art and Technology Center, NYC
A phantasmagorical Dada esque multi-media production with live music performed by the actors with a Weimar aesthetic. The production is presented in an upside-down hotel room full of trap doors and magic suitcases.
The Curse tells the story of a 1920’s shabby aristocrat Renaldo The who is murdered by his trecherous maid and poker-faced valet who are subsequently trapped by Renaldo The in his absurd death dream for slapstick revenge. Voted best new musical by the Gothamist 2007.

American Hallucinations - 2008, 3LD Art and Technology Center, NYC
A multi/media history lesson of the absurd. This piece takes on an episodic and ridiculous journey thru 40 years of American history and popular misconceptions from 1933-1963 told from the perspective of TheaterTHE's stock characters as they inhabit and pantomime the archetypes of those eras: hobos, solders, painters, starlets, prisoners etc. All the action takes place inside a tightly controlled scientific laboratory where the musicians/scientists prod and take notes on what these characters experience on their journey. Featuring Live feed, dance sequences and rock performance.
