BWW Reviews: WHOLLY BRIEF! BATMAN, Thankfully Does Not Contain Briefs
Chaotic Acts of Theatre (CAT) has done it again. They are becoming quite deft at putting together a parody of a geek genre with countless nods to other fandoms in a short period of time. This show was WHOLLY BRIEF! BATMAN: THIS IS THE PARODY THIS CITY DESERVES and was presented in partnership with the Ada Community Library in celebration of the 75th anniversary of Batman.
This particular production was all 8 Batman movies in 45 minutes. Two actors: one lucky one who played Batman [Ian Price Taylor] while the other [Cole Niblett] played all the other characters. These poor actors put themselves through the ropes. They are so drained of energy by the time they are finished - but if you look at them closely, you will see they are high on the joy they bring to their audience.
I don't think there was a period of more than 2 minutes that went by where the audience didn't laugh, chuckle, chortle, or snicker (with one or two moans thrown in too boot). It was such a fun afternoon.
If you see that the CAT is doing a performance of a farce (the actors are good so a straight show would probably be fabulous as well) but especially a farce right now, be sure to grab up some tickets (they are pay what you can in most venues), you will not be upset you did.
