The Death of Griffin Hunter
Kirk Wood Bromley’s play “The Death of Griffin Hunter” is now at the Brick in Brooklyn (Bricklyn? Never mind), but only for a little while. So go already!

ONLY TWO MORE WEEKS to catch The Death of Griffin Hunter!

Backstage calls The Death of Griffin Hunter: “Fascinating…ambitious political thriller…an edgy kaleidoscope of brutality, humor, eroticism, romance, and philosophizing.”

Time-Out NY calls The Death of Griffin Hunter: “absorbing and amusing…a gaudy political thriller [with] intricately sturdy plotting.”

Point Break Live!
Point Break Live! continues the current trend of silliness in off-off Broadway theater, and we say…

Protesting too much?

Liev Schreiber says, “I come off as psychotic . . . I’m misrepresented as a scary person. I’m not. It’s all about my size and my eyebrows.” Dude, if you have to tell us that… He also mentions that he made the beast with two backs on the Staten Island Ferry. Hey, whatever floats your boat (rim shot). At least he’s a movie star who does lots of theater. Even if he’s not psychotic.

Will Die for You

Joe’s Pub is presenting the dynamic duo of Kiki and Herb. This is a way more intimate way to catch ’em than when they were on Broadway, and maybe they’ll sing some Suicidal Tendencies, so go check ’em out.

“Having reached the heights of Broadway this past summer, Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman bring their characters Kiki and Herb back downtown for a series of late-night shows at Joe’s Pub where people can drink, eat and quite possibly have Kiki walk across their table.

In our continuing efforts to put as much information about the original production of DREAMGIRLS as we can, here’s a piece by David Hinckley from the New York Daily News talking about the first three Broadway D’Girls (there’s something they’ve probably never been called before).

Theater Resources Unlimited has more job postings, casting notices, requests for new plays to read, and other hoo-ha than you can shake a script at. (You see what we did there? We made a play on words. We are soooo clever.) The bi-monthly update (see below) has enough to keep you going for at least five months.
