Photo Flash: Lesli Margherita, Kate Wetherhead and More in Villain: DeBlanks SPACE HOLE! at The Triad
Sunday night, February 7, the audience saw a 'hole' new show as Villain: DeBlanks SPACE HOLE! played its first ever performance. Scroll down for photos from the performance!
The latest installment of the monthly "Brenda Braxton presents Cillain: DeBlanks" series, SPACE HOLE! loosely follows the story of Captain Yeshi Zabitsh (Lesli Margherita) and her crew as they confront Overlord Underhand (Trent Armand Kendall) and his associate Oletta Broadtalk (Hank Morris). Aboard the "U.S.S. Stephen Sondheim" (a new name each show, provided by the audience), we also met Private Stroker (Eddie Capuano), Ayn Droyd (Kate Wetherhead) and chief engineer Orin Spiring (Jim Newman) as they race againt the clock to discover who launched Philip DeBlanks into space.
A Time Out NY Critics' Pick written by Billy Mitchell, "Villain: DeBlanks" is the uproarious improvisational comedy where the cast says words you put in their mouths. The audience provides nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. (the wilder, the better), and the actors provide the laughs-uncensored and unrehearsed-as they enact the deep-space adventures of Captain Zabitsh and her crew. It's adult "Mad Libs" meets "Spaceballs" meets "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" -- and it's never the same show twice!
After appearing in three benefit performances of "Villian DeBlanks," Brenda Braxton is delighted to announce this periodic run currently scheduled for six months -- November through April -- starring some of the funniest people in New York. Ms. Braxton will join the show in April following her run in "After Midnight" aboard Norwegian Escape.
"Brenda Braxton presents Villain: DeBlanks" plays The Triad (158 W 72nd St.) on Sundays: March 6 & April 3 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25, and there is a 2-drink minimum. For more information, visit villaindeblanks.com.
