by Keith Waits - Mar 5, 2018

As a prelude to this play, vintage cartoons from the 1930's were projected onstage as the audience entered to take their seats. Walt Disney's Steamboat Willie, which introduced Mickey Mouse, was animated by Ub Iwerks, who (we are informed on titles between the shorts) soon left Disney to make his own cartoons for MGM, including Flip the Frog, an example of which followed hard upon. Before curtain, we were also treated to Betty Boop, and all of the cartoons were in stark black & white. Playwright Eli Keel identifies this period as the 'Golden Age of Animation', a time when the form was almost literally being invented. The end of the decade would bring Snow White, often described, somewhat inaccurately, as the first feature-length animated film. That it was in full color underscores the rapid development of the technology and the storytelling. However much the late 1940's and 1950's are celebrated for the rise of Disney's commercial empire, Keel has chosen the most interesting and fertile period of animation creativity in which to set his story.

by Brent Deekens - Mar 13, 2018

DAMES AT SEA, in its original lead-off at the Cafe Cino in New York City 1966, started off as a short, song-filled comedy routine spoofing the Gold Diggers flicker shows of 1930s - then a reasonably priced respite for the downtrodden working masses of The Great Depression. The chief conceit to AT SEA, as it further developed, was that the show featured a small orchestra accompanying a cast of six - a teasing contrast to Busby Berkeley's sweeping camera angles that captured the slew of sequined hoofers tearing it up to the big band blares of The Golden Age of Hollywood. Indeed, those mammoth production numbers were just the icing on the cake; indeed, the story and central characters composed the central core - a sugary element in and of itself in terms of the layers of overt sentimentality that said component whipped up.
