I'm going to take a minute and try to use whatever influence I may have with you folks (I can dream, can't I?) and tell you that you really should get yourselves down to see Oedipus at Palm Springs at New York Theatre Workshop. Now I had heard all about the full frontal lesbian nudity, which is SO not anything I'd ever be interested in in a million years. And I had seen the Five Lesbian Brothers' last show at New York Theatre Workshop 6 or 7 years back and didn't really love it or connect with it in any way. But this show is different. So it was with less than great expectations that I found myself in the theater tonight, prepared to not be engaged by a play about lesbians. Boy was I wrong. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back and see it again! It's not one hundred percent perfect and I have a few minor little quibbles here and there, but overall it is extremely powerful. And funny. And smart. And it's one act with no intermission (the best kind of theater there is!). So please do yourself a favor and go see it. There is talk of a commercial transfer, which I suspect would be quite a challenge given the subject matter. But do go see it. Really. And don't be surprised if you see me there again, too. Did I mention that it was powerful? And funny? GO!
P.S. Oh yeah, forgot to mention...New York Theatre Workshop is a client of mine. But if I didn't love the show, I would not be telling you that you have to go see it.
