Photo Flash: Femme Fatale Theater¬'s SALOME
Femme Fatale Theater's new production of Oscar Wilde's SALOME features an all-male cast, exploring unrequited lust and sexual taboos through a darkly comic queer aesthetic. This wickedly funny tale of sex, death, and head follows Salome, the spoiled step-daughter of Herod, ruler of Judea, and her quest to obtain the affections of a feared prophet by any means necessary, including her infamous Dance of the Seven Veils.
SALOME runs for a limited 12 performance engagement from October 6 - 16 at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City, Queens.
Davi Santos portrays the seductive titular character, and rounding out the cast are Danny Baird, Daniel DeStefano, Francisco Huergo, John C. Hume, Frankie LaPace, Nick Moore, Eugene Michael Santiago, and Ian Schulz.
Directed by Robert Ribar, with set design by Jason Sherwood, costume design by Danielle Mahoney, lighting design by William Noguchi, original music by Ryan Marino, and choreography by Fuerza Bruta cast member Ben Hobbs.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish-born playwright, poet, and essayist. Perhaps best known for his biting wit, Wilde authored several plays including the classic comedy of manners The Importance of Being Earnest, which recently received a Tony Award-winning Broadway revival. Other major works by Wilde include the plays Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, as well as the novella The Picture of Dorian Gray.
