Recession Special Double Bill Begins At The Green Room 1/29
by BWW News Desk - Jan 29, 2009

Louis Salamone and 45 Bleecker Street Theatre present two new plays in one evening in a Recession Special Double Bill playing in The Green Room at The Theatres at 45 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village, NYC. 'SAILOR MAN', which won the 'Overall Excellence - Outstanding Play' Award at the 2008 NY International Fringe Festival, is a darkly comic tribute to the exploits of a beloved spinach-eating seaman. Created by Ryan Iverson and Scott Peterman and directed by Peter James Cook with fight choreography by Jacob Grigolla-Rosenbaum, the fast, furious and bloody hour of spinach-fueled mayhem features the writers in the respective roles of Sailor Man and The Brute with Lauren Blumenfeld as Olive. Startlingly violent, it serves up Saturday morning cartoons, Tarantino-style. 'Sailor Man', which is co-produced by The Two-Fisted Theatre Company, LLC, begins the double bill at 8 PM. 'RUMSPRINGA', written and directed by Peter Zinn and featuring Jim Boerlin, C. S. Drury, Kirsty Meares and Micky Sumner, is a dark comedy that explores the desire in all of us to experience life outside our 'normal' lives. Several generations face their own lives during a Rumspringa rave in an Indiana cornfield filled with rebellious Amish teenagers. The play 'Rumspringa', which ends with a 'rave', was work-shopped at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theatre and at HB Studio in New York City. In October, 2008 it was presented at the Geraldine Page Salon in Chelsea. 'Rumspringa', which is co produced by GSP Enterprises, LLC, will follow 'Sailor Man' at 9 PM. (Rumspringa is the coming-of-age experience for Amish teenagers when they are permitted a period of experimentation and freedom from religious rules, including going to bars, drinking, taking drugs, driving cars, and dating non-Amish people. The term rumspringa is a literal translation of the Pennsylvania German expression, 'running around.') (more...)
