IRC’s “The Bald Soprano” on display.

On today’s podcast, I went to a rehearsal for Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium’s production of “The Bald Soprano” by Eugene Ionesco. My last experience with this piece was back in 2010 when Brat Productions produced a 24-Hour version of the piece at the Annenberg Center. The piece is about 65 minutes and moves at that pace but, so much is going on that you cannot help but focus in on the segmented moments where the work the cast has put into interpretation is clearly on display. IRC’s production is no different.

The space always lends dramatically to an Ionesco piece and this production will be staged at the Bethany Mission Gallery in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia. This rehearsal took place at The BeardCave in University City. Stay Tuned.

ABOUT THE BALD SOPRANO

The collapse of reality, a tragedy of language: classic absurdism freshly conceived! Ionesco awash in a world gone awry—causality means nothing, numbers don’t add up, names have no validity, existence is surreal. A comedy for our time, at Bethany Mission Gallery, the ultimate evening of Idiopathic outsider art!

Jean Giraudoux’s The Enchanted

On today’s podcast, I take a trip to an enchanted forest setup at Walnut Street Theatre, Studio 5 to search for Tina Brock of Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium. We wander through this forest talking about “The Enchanted by Jean Giraudoux”, the production’s many elements among the backdrop of an absurd political climate. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT THE ENCHANTED

By Jean Giraudoux

“A fascinating, absorbing adventure, full of grace and wit.”
–NY Times

A schoolteacher in a provincial French town is seduced by the ghost of a murderer. With the aid of the village doctor, she seeks answers regarding the riddle of death. Enter her lover–an ardent bureaucrat who hopes his well-calibrated love will keep her earthbound.

A poetically musical and mercurial classic, a clash between the struggles of life and the mystery of death, The Enchanted is the perfect platform for Giraudoux to exercise his signature playful theatricality: characters hilariously and whimsically debate whether our fear of death fuels our love of life and whether the dead could outvote the living if they imprudently returned.

ABOUT RHINOCEROS

Classic Ionesco comedy! A contagious hysteria is sweeping the city. One by one, residents grow horns, trample flowerbeds, decimate buildings—a citizenry gone gaga for conformity. Two friends struggle to maintain their identity and sanity. Who will turn next? From the team behind Kafka’s The Castle, Fringe Festival 2013.
