Drama Dept. recently turned the talents of its acclaimed theatrical company to the world of prime time soaps with The Cartells, by Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed, As Bees in Honey Drown).  Directed by Carl Andress, The Cartells was a live, four-part, weekly stage series that played at Comix (353 W. 14th St.) in New York's Meatpacking District.  The last installment--"Cast a Stone"--took place on November 6th.

Starring Vanessa Aspillaga, Alana O'Brien (filling in for original star Elizabeth Berkley), Cheyenne JacksonKeith Davis, Brad Aldous, Joanna Gleason, Jason Butler Harner, Peter Frechette, Peter Hermann, Cady Huffman, Brian D'Arcy James, Pedro Pascal, David Rakoff, Kristen Schaal, and Joey Slotnick, The Cartells concerns "about a wealthy oil family having too much fun in an Aaron Spelling kind of way," state press materials.

"What will happen when Craven Cartell's missing wife Titsiana reappears on the day he is to wed Karma Smugg? Will Craven go back to laying his pipeline with Titsiana or will he go all green with Karma? When Gamine says 'action' before sex with Dank, is it just foreplay? Why can't Sterling find the right girl? And why does he spend so much time with Samson? And how does Hubris the butler always know the perfect Bible verse? Find out answers to all these and more at The Cartells."
