2015 Season, Boom Artists, Boomerang Support, Indie Theatre Community, Lickspittles

You want to see Lickspittles rehearsal shots? Cool, here they are!

Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens begins performances this week! We’ve still got tickets available, and you’re going to be sad and angry (sangry?) if you miss this. For Real.

This return engagement of the show has retained all the warmth and hilarity of the original, and added color and light to bring out the mastery of Johnna Adams‘ words, John Hurley‘s brilliant direction, and the cast’s awesomeness.

Here’s some sneak peek shots from final rehearsals…

You gotta get tickets, friends. That’s all there is to it.

Johnna Adams’ masterpiece makes a return!

We’re raising money thru our IndieGoGo campaign for our Fall and Winter programming. In addition to Waving Goodbye, the other full production in this season is Johnna Adams’ LICKSPITTLES, BUTTONHOLERS AND DAMNED PERNICIOUS GO-BETWEENS. Boomerang produced “Lickspittles…” in 2013 as part of our last rep season, and response could not have been more clear: We need to see more of this play! So we are remounting it in rotating rep with Waving Goodbye (“Givin’ the People…Give the People what the Want!”).

What makes “Lickspittles…” special? There are so many things. First, it’s a story totally written in various forms of verse, from rhyming couplets to limericks to sestinas to free verse. It’s an amazing piece of writing. When Associate Artistic Director John Hurley got hold of it, he made it into a remarkable evening in the theatre. Three nutty Danish court officials try to save Denmark from destruction by going to France and thwarting Napoleon, but happen to meet their equals in the female court officials from France. Love, loss, history, lust, pride and most of all laughter are the DNA of this play, so much so that we knew we had to revisit it.

Part of our mission is to develop new work. Once developed, the other side of our mission kicks in: the provide the brightest spotlight we can for this work, making sure that audiences get as much access to it as possible. Hundreds have people have seen the show so far, our goal now is to get thousands of people to see it. This play is too dynamic to be shuttered away.

We still need your help to make this a reality. Please make a donation to our campaign to help bring LICKSPITTLES, BUTTONHOLERS AND DAMNED PERNICIOUS GO-BETWEENS back this Winter. Everyone who donates $25 gets complimentary tickets to both of these plays in our rep.

Join our team, support the cause, and be a part of all the love and laughter.
