Daddy Issues - 2016 - Off-Broadway

In DADDY ISSUES, it is 1982 and Donald Moscowitz has overbearing parents. They disapprove of his choice of profession (actor), his flair for decorating (pastels) and his lifestyle (homosexual). The one thing that would make them happy is a grandchild. His solution: hire the ten-year old kid downstairs to play his son. What could possibly go wrong?

As explained in his program notes, playwright Jeff Augustin moved from Miami to attend college in Boston; envisioning New England as a liberal mecca where he could pursue his American Dream while freely exploring his identity. What he found was a part of the country he describes as a?oedeeply steeped in whiteness,a?? where people of color are regarded only in terms of their race-related experiences, rather than people living the full spectrum of human existence.

A struggling actor decides God wants him to be a monk; a woman's parents swing through the 1960s with wild key parties and martinis leaving her asking, "Which one is my father?"; a renowned psychiatrist faces his own daddy-issues; a girl from out West finds that the search for perfect love has turned her into a wandering, reckless cowboy; and a performer learns to embrace the absurd as his career teeters on the brink.

There must have been a two-for-one offer on the day director Barbora Horakova visited the Regietheater prop-store to kit out her Luisa Miller for English National Opera. White walls and plenty of black marker pens to daub on them; geometric structures; sinister clowns; a chorus all costumed somewhere between circus-freak and sexy-Bedlam; a quartet of contemporary dancers scraping and draping themselves across the set: we got them all in this hectic, wilful, defiantly joyless staging of Verdi's tragedy of love across the class divide.

All artists must think they’re better than anybody else, even if only by a little bit, or they must be convinced they have something to say at least. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be doing it. “The work has to come first”, even before personal relationships. That’s what Isaac and his two friends Piotr and Damien believe. It’s a recipe for disaster and Painting By Numbers turns it into a hilarious catastrophe.

Amsterdam's Pip Blom will release their debut album Boat on May 31 via Heavenly/[PIAS] and recently made a splash at their first-ever US appearance at SXSW, with the Chicago Tribune naming them one of the Best Up-and-Coming Bands at SXSW, and the Austin Chronicle calling them one of 9 Must-See Rockers at SXSW. Today the quartet share Boat's exuberant second single 'Ruby.' The single comes via a video directed by Raymond van Mil, who says, 'We started with flamingos. Apparently there are two distinct families standing some 20 meters apart on one exact place in Zeeland/the Netherlands. We went there and were in amazement, it looked so alien in the Dutch landscape. From there the UFO story unfolded and was fun. Was it a dream? A memory? A documentary? Only Pip knows. '
