Have you ever faced a difficult decision and wondered what it would be like to leave the solution to the fates? And I don’t mean the “sit around until things work themselves out” fates, although we’ve all done that too, but the “roll the dice and do whatever they say” fates. Joe Kurtz has, and wrote a play about it, clarifying once and for all the wonders of stress-free decision-making for the less adventurous humans. No balls? No problem! Just roll the die and do what it says - let the universe guide your way.
Without giving away too much more, I’d like to congratulate Rob (played by Justin Anselmi) and Griselda (played by Robb Moreira) for being the stars of the show. The $15 price ticket is worth it just to see Moreira in drag as a crazy Latina landlady and watch Anselmi’s stage antics as he trips around in Guitar Hero jammies and a military hat. The rest of the crew, George (played by Joe Kurtz), Kate (played by Amanda Kay Schill), Stage Manager (played by David Williams) and Police Voice (played by Joe Reese) maintain the misadventurous hilarity well.
The play is presented by Mind The Art Entertainment in a small experimental theater on E 4thStreet in Manhattan called “La Mama.” DIE is part of Mind the Art Anthology, a series of three performances encompassing musical theater, comedic looks at philosophy and political performance art, celebrating Ellen Stewart, the founder’s, 90thbirthday. DIE will be performed once again on Saturday, April 3rd at 10 P.M.
