DESPERATELY SCREENING SUSAN Set for The PIT, 2/14
Following the international success of his solo comedy Desperately Seeking the Exit, writer and performer Peter Michael Marino presents his new multimedia companion piece Desperately Screening Susan at The People's Improv Theater (The PIT) on Friday, February 14th at 8:00 PM.
Desperately Screening Susan is a 60-minute show and tell which utilizes rare West End production footage, original film clips, music, images and a bit of backstage goss to tell the story of how he adapted the beloved Madonna movie Desperately Seeking Susan into a West End Blondie musical that closed after a month.
Marino made lemonade out of his lemon and turned the tale of his epic flop into the 5-star reviewed one-man comedy Desperately Seeking the Exit. For the past two years, Marino has performed the solo show on three continents, including a month-long run at London's Leicester Square Theatre. Now audiences can engage in the multi-media experience of Desperately Screening Susan in this one night only event.
In addition to writing and performing, Marino is the creator and co-producer of SOLOCOM, an all-solo festival that packed houses at The PIT this past November and gave birth to 60 world premiere solo comedies.
