Former HVSF director onstage in NYC’s Bedlam
Former Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Terry O’Brien is taking to the stage again, this time as a writer and actor, performing his own one-act work, Popular Mechanics, as part of a four-man mini-festival of one-act plays at New York City’s Bedlam Theater called Man: Solo.
Popular Mechanics’ description reads: “Mannequins, mushroom clouds, Hiroshima, the upper Midwest, probability, infinity, the bikini, playing with nuclear fire, how an H-Bomb works, and what it’s like to check in at the Hilbert Hotel. Take a surreal tour of the Cold War and beyond in this memoir/speculation.”
Man: Solo also features pieces by HVSF favorite Jason O’Connell, performing his The Dork Night, along with Alan Altschuler and Stephan Wolfert. The series, which has already opened, will run through May 17 at the Access Theater (380 Broadway, Fourth Floor, New York).
Bedlam is a company committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience.
Tickets for each production are $20. Tickets and performance schedule are available at theatrebedlam.org.
