Brick Theater, Inc. Presents SAMUEL & ALASDAIR Now Thru 4/17


The Mad Ones and Brick Theater, Inc. present SAMUEL & ALASDAIR: A PERSONAL HISTORY OF THE ROBOT WAR-- now playing at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn thru April 17. An extra late show has been added for Saturday, April 17 at 10:30 pm. The play combines 1950's radio drama, vintage country music, and Soviet science for a look back in time and forward to what's next. The cast Features Marc Bovino, Joe Curnutte, Michael Dalto and Stephanie Wright Thompson. SAMUEL & ALASDIR is written by Marc Bovino and Joe Curnutte, and Directed and co-conceived by Lila Neugebauer.

In an alternate global history, the cold war was decided not by détente, not by nuclear holocaust, but by massive robot invasion. Among the survivors, a team of Russian radio hosts, warmed to a lost culture of 1950s Americana, broadcast a story of brothers' love drawn straight from the American heartland.Broadcasting live from the Victory Theater in downtown Irkutsk, it's The at Home Field Guide, brought to you by Soviet Free Radio Order. Today your hosts buck the chaos and mounting panic to bring you an American story of first love and first heartbreak, along with the musical stylings of Alexei 'Tumbleweed' Petrovya. Tune in, take heart--and be careful out there, friends.

Tickets for SAMUEL & ALASDAIR are $18 and can be purchased by calling Theatermania at (212) 352-3101. The Brick is located at 575 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg Bklyn (L to Lorimer, G to Metropolitan). For more information, visit or email
