Live Theatre Workshop proudly presents its
2006-2007 ETCETERA Season
The Baltimore Waltz By Paula Vogel
Directed by Adam-Adolfo. October 20th - November 11th, 2006
Anna and her brother Carl embark on a whirlwind tour of Europe in search of an unorthodox cure for a fatal disease she picked up off of a Kindergarten Toilet that only afflicts Single Schoolteachers. Anna does her best to make up for a lifetime of celibacy as the play jumps from hotel room to hospital bed and back, and not all is as it seems in Paula Vogel's
heartbreaking goodbye to her real-life brother.
The Tragedy of Hamlet By William Shakespeare
Directed by Adam-Adolfo. January 12th - February 3rd, 2007
A contemporary revisualization of William Shakespeare's quintessential tragedy set in modern-day Denmark. An ode to angst, the Generation of Emo Chic, and an era in which children are taking guns to school.
Fat Pig By Neil LaBute
Directed by Chuck Rankin. February 23rd - March 17, 2007
Tom falls for a fat girl; his best friend disapproves and his ex is disgusted. The show takes a brutal look not at obesity in America but at how we
perceive obesity in America, showing how weight functions in power
dynamics at the work place, in the bedroom, and out in the world.
Hedwig & The Angry Inch
Text By John Cameron Mitchell / Music & Lyrics by Stephen Trask
Directed by Delani D. Cody. April 6th - 28th, 2007
The story of an "internationally ignored" rock singer, Hedwig, and her search for stardom and love. Born a boy named Hansel whose life's dream is to find his other half, Hedwig reluctantly submits to a sex change operation in order to marry an American G.I. and get over the Berlin Wall to freedom. The
operation is botched, leaving her with the aforementioned "angry inch".
Finding herself high, dry and divorced in a Kansas trailer park, she pushes on to form a rock band and encounters a lover/protégé in young Tommy Gnosis, who eventually leaves her, steals her songs and becomes a huge rock star. A bitter yet witty Hedwig with her pan-Slavic band, The Angry Inch, shadows Tommy's stadium tour, performing in near-empty restaurants for bewildered diners and a few die-hard fans. Through a collage of songs, flashbacks and animation, Hedwig tells her life story, trying to capitalize on her tabloid celebrity as the supposed ex-lover of famed rock star,
Tommy Gnosis, and along the way discovers the origin of love.
