I am currently working with Tannis Kowalchuk and numerous other collaborators at NACL on a performance called struck involving neuroscience, the northern lights, and dark angels. You can find out more about it at the NACL site, or watch the promotional video on Kickstarter.
Cleveland Public Theatre will host a return engagement of Darwinii: The Comeuppance of Man March 1-17, 2012, 6415 Detroit Ave, Cleveland. Shows are at 7pm. There is no late seating. Details at cptonline.org
Darwinii will hit Northeast Ohio once again September 30, October 1 & 2, 2011 at the Warner Main Theatre at Oberlin College. More information HERE.
The reviews are in, or out, but unanimous in the pointing of thumbs. Check it:
Darwinii is one of the most mesmerizing pieces of theater this town has seen in a decade…. See it. Be enlightened. Be frightened. And be delightened by a wholly original and profoundly funny journey to the center of your very own DNA.
[Keyser] works this blood-red runway with the fierceness of Tyra Banks on meth…. Darwinii is an immediate contender for the title of Most Enjoyable and Engrossing 70 Minutes on Stage in 2011.
Tickets are $10-$25. Purchase online or call 216-631-2727 x501. Some shows are sold out.

The Philadelphia Weekly’s J. Cooper Robb picks “Eleven shows you can’t miss at the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe”.
“The Fringe boasts plenty of alternative venues but few are as curious or fascinating as the American Philosophical Society. A majestic building boasting all manner of bizarre oddities, APS is hosting the world premiere of Darwinii: The Comeuppance of Man (Sept. 4-12 and Oct. 16-25). Penned by acclaimed playwright Glen Berger ( Underneath the Lintel ) the comic exploration of Darwinism stars Brett Keyser, who gave an impressive performance a few years back in the quirky sleeper hit Horribus! Horribus!”
…though we still call it Horridus! Horridus! Thanks for remembering, J.
