Lineup Announced for The LIVINGroom's May Performances at Stage 773
The LIVINGroom announces the lineup and details for the second installment of its 2017 solo performance season at Stage 773. Performers Anu Bhatt, David Gordezky, Maddy Low, Nick McDowell & Tatsue Sera, and Jerome Riley take the Cabaret Theater stage in Stage 773 on Sundays, May 7, 14, and 21 in The LIVINGroom's Lobster Show, directed by LIVINGroom ensemble member Abigail Phelps. The evening's emcee is Kasey Foster.
In the Lobster Show, The LIVINGroom blends solo performance with other creative forms to explore a year of growth and ask the question, How does an individual grow out of discomfort and struggle? And what does all of that have to do with lobster? Anxieties will spill across the dance floor, brains will be poked to retrieve precious memories--and if that doesn't work, trapping oneself in a bathroom for a minute or two just might. The mundane will be scrolled away, and celebrating done with a cakewalk.
The LIVINGroom's Lobster Show is emceed by Kasey Foster, who has directed/choreographed over 30 original works in Chicago since 2004, and sings with Chicago bands Grood, Babe-alon 5, Old Timey, and This Must be the Band. Abigail Phelps has previously directed The LIVINGroom's Block Party, Scared Sh*tless, and The Grown-Ups' Table. She is a acting program graduate of Columbia College Chicago whose next directing project is a new work, "Mein Comps," written by Tyler Anthony Smith.
The LIVINGroom's Lobster Show runs at 7:00 pm on Sundays, May 7, 14 and 21 at Stage 773, located at 1225 W. Belmont, Chicago. Tickets are $10, $7 for students with valid ID, and are available at the box office and at http://stage773.com, or 773-327-5252.
