The Public House Theatre Presents WHO IS GABI GRAYSKÜLL?, Now thru 8/28
High art, meet sketch comedy. Sketch comedy, meet high art.
Gabi Graysküll the most influential artist of her generation, but no one has ever met or even seen her. Is she real? Is she one person? A corporate creation? Marina Ambramovic's shittier sister? Everyone is asking the same question: WHO IS GABI GRAYSKÜLL?
WHO IS GABI GRAYSKÜLL? is part play, part sketch comedy show, part high-art mystery and part excuse for some truly majestic wig work. The colorful debut revue from comedy trio The Brendas directly questions the value of art, explores the inanity and pretension of the art world, its conflation of "creepy" with "interesting," and finally answers the ages-old question "Are windchimes art?"
Because, after all, art is simply something enough people agree is not a shitty piece of garbage.
WHO IS GABI GRAYSKÜLL? previews tonight, July 10 at 8pm at The Public House Theatre (3914 N. Clark) and opens July 24 at 8pm. It runs Thursdays through August 28. Tickets are $10.
From moronic cruise ship junk-art collectors to cockney gay graffiti artists to bitchtacular Sotheby's auctioneers to blitzed suburban women embarrassing themselves at a bottle and bottega, WHO IS GABI GRAYSKÜLL? scours the art world high and low for the true identity of creative genius.
The Brendas consists of sketch comedy veterans Becca Levine (pH Productions, GayCo Productions), Alex Vanover-Miller (GayCo Productions, Damn Gina!) and John Loos (Second City writing faculty, GayCo Productions). Their director, Tyler Dean Kempf, recently assistant directed the Second City e.t.c revue Apes of Wrath and is a Second City faculty member.
