THE INVENTOR, THE ESCORT, THE PHOTOGRAPHER, HER BOYFRIEND AND HIS GIRLFRIEND - Written & Directed by Matt Morillo - Set for JUNE 2 - July 8
KADM Productions has announced the West Coast premiere of The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend, Matt Morillo's raucous new sex comedy, for a limited engagement at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. There will be one preview performance on June 1, with opening night set for Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 8:00. The Inventor ... will play through July 8.
The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend is an outrageous sex romp, juxtaposing two lusty comic scenarios involving five people in a New York City apartment building during a fierce blizzard. Downstairs, Julia, a call girl, arrives for an appointment with Jeffrey, a nerdy guy who has made a fortune inventing and selling sexual devices. What begins as a routine 'trick' has quite the unexpected ending. In the meanwhile, upstairs neighbors Karen and John, an estranged couple, settle in for an evening of sweet reconciliation and make-up sex. Their plans go awry, however, when Molly, a young dancer with whom John had dallied, arrives seeking refuge from the blizzard. Drunken lunacy ensues.
Matt Morillo's first play, Angry Young Women In Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues, was a runaway hit on two continents, packing houses and receiving rave reviews through three separate runs in New York City, and two separate runs in Sydney, Australia. Morillo's other playwriting credits include All Aboard The Marriage Hearse, and American Soldiers. Also a screenwriter, he made his debut at age 23 with the award-winning film The Pretenders (2000), and he has written several highly lauded and award-winning short films, including Maid of Honor (2003).
Directed by Morillo, the cast of The Inventor ... will feature (in alphabetical order) Jeffrey Cannata, Isidora Goreshter, Jenni Halina, Jessica Moreno, and Jaret Sacrey. The set design is by Dan Mailley, and the lighting and sound designs are by Matt Richter. The stage manager is Rebecca Schoenberg, and The Inventor, The Escort, The Photographer, Her Boyfriend and His Girlfriend is produced for KADM Productions by Racquel Lehrman and Theatre Planners.
