Thursday July 14th, 8pm, $20, at 3LD... Last Minute TIX HERE
Brought to you by Brooklyn Gypsies and happening at 3LD, 'Last Night at The Palladium,' is an immersive theatrical experience that takes us from Pop Art to present day, featuring (to name a only a few) characters such as Andy Warhol (whom I have the honor of playing), Patti Smith, Allen Ginsberg, Basquiat, etc. as well as dope graffiti and spoken-word artists of today!
"...back from its hit 2014 run at The Bushwick Starr, Last Night at the Palladium is part interactive art installation and part immersive play set at an epic party. Accompanied by a live DJ and projections, Last Night At The Palladium tells the story of New York Citys transformative art scene from Andy Warhols famous Silver Factory to the closing of the Palladium Night Club. Actors, graffiti artists, musicians and poets take us through the decades, bringing to life Warhol, Basquiat, Ginsberg, Patti Smith, Fab Five Freddy, Edie Sedgwick, Patti Astor, among many other irreverent voices of the city. For this one-of-a-kind experience, The Brooklyn Gypsies will transform the entire 3LD Studio A for ONE NIGHT ONLY. Grab a date and wear something silver! Welcome to the Last Night at the Palladium..." -Brooklyn Gypsies Website
For me, this has been a very difficult process, but in saying that, VERY rewarding! To try and embody someone so iconic, whose voice and demeanor is both unique and memorable, I definitely felt a few moments of panic, and honestly felt like I wouldn't be able to pull it off! I would never say that I've done it, but I will say that I'm giving it my best shot!
I'm excited to see what happens with this production --perhaps they might have a longer run in the future! And you can come and see it! We shall see!
I hope you are having an awesome Summer! I will see you at the Theater --or a coffee shop --or somewhere that's green...
Lots of Love,
