KICKING A DEAD HORSE v CATERED AFFAIR#1
Posted: 7/16/08 at 2:08pm
Hi all

I have a ticket to the last show of A CATERED AFFAIR on July 27 (the only time I'll be back up to NYC before the end of August). I haven't seen it before

Now I just found some stuff about a show KICKING A DEAD HORSE at the Public (I believe)

Has anyone seen KADH? I would *really* like to see it (tho I'm not sure if I can still get a ticket for 7/27), and especially if I hear from someone(s) that it is fabulous, I will try to get a ticket to it and just skip ACA

(if I do, someone can have my ACA ticket if they want it)

Has anyone seen both? Any opinions, suggestions, people who know it's already sold out?

Thanks for any help

OK, KICKING A DEAD HORSE seems to be COMPLETELY sold out

Sorry, I imagine everyone but me knew that

I did search and didn't see any threads about it, so could anyone who's seen it write a few words?

(since it seems I'm going to miss it re: KICKING A DEAD HORSE v CATERED AFFAIR )

Seen them both.

Bluntly, neither is all that good but A Catered Affair was a bit less not-good than Kicking a Dead Horse.

Keep the ticket you have.

Kicking a Dead Horse had its press opening Monday (14th) so the reviews were all over yesterday's papers and are still on websites.

This is an 80 minute monologue sort of I guess giving a modern analogy to the death of the West. Well intentioned and dull is what it really is. There is a very good visual joke at the very end.

I'm not going to say A Catered Affair is scintilating, but at least people sing.

Thank you for answering

I read some of the reviews, it made it sound less interesting than it did at first (tho I can't get a ticket anyway, so there you go)

Just curious -- did you see Port Authority or Faith Healer (both monologue-ish), and did you like them?
