We’re doing something quite unusual at Beyond Baroque
on Saturday, May 16th.
Steve Goldman has written a poem about five entities who
attempt to bully, woo or cajole him into the afterlife.
“That the poem shall come alive…” he is directing
a theatrical version with a cast of stellar poets as the
creatures. Laurel Ann Bogen, Brendan Constantine
and Michael C. Ford are among the luminaries
gracing his stage.
And here is where it gets quite interesting. He’s asked me to
direct a second version of the SAME POEM on the SAME NIGHT.
The two iterations are WILDLY different!
This is my most ambitious project since I was commissioned by the
LA Theatre Center to mount an original full-length piece for a six-
performance run. Starring Wanda Coleman, it included a ballerina,
artists, members of Keith Antar Mason’s “Hittite Empire” and a
30-piece marching band from Compton.
I hope you can come out to see us next week. And, if not, have
a splendid time with whatever interest engages you!
…a siren-song from the afterlife.
