This month I’ll be performing in Rady&Bloom’s DING DONG IT’S THE OCEAN by Alex Borinsky, directed by Jeremy Bloom, with music by Joe White and banners by Brian Rady.
An arts collective gathers to celebrate their director’s birthday; fueled by Moscow Mules, the partygoers sprawl across the apartment, decompressing from their ongoing rehearsal process. They speculate about the end of the world. They dance. They nap. As the night unfolds, the play that they are building – about our planet’s ailing oceans — pervades every conversation, until the party guests find they are performing it. DING DONG IT’S THE OCEAN is a play about what people manage to find in each other when the world feels past saving.
It’s a very special show.
We’re at JACK May 17 – June 3
