Guest Stars

The only and only Damion, aka Queering The Apparatus, made a stop by our rehearsals tonight for Angels in America, and he was a breath of fresh air...sharing his queer academic views on the Kushner aesthetic, the historical implications of the play, and coming up with great ways to think about the play for a contemporary audience. It would be a tragic mistake on our part to think of Angels as a period piece; the social and sexual politics of the drama are still very much in play in George Bush's America, a land very much in need of angels. He also held court at our after-rehearsal drinkathon (already a crew ritual), where the discussion ran from the semitiocs of crystal meth to Project Runway, the scatology on display in Flavor of Love, and the race war brewing in the new edition of Survivor. (C'mon, we can't be serious all the time.)
