The Insights & Revelations Performance Series at the Emelin Theatre is presenting a sneak preview in advance its off-Broadway premier of Rehearsing Consciousness on February 25th at 8 pm.
Written and performed by Obie winner Martin Moran (Spamalot, Cabaret, Titanic) and directed by Seth Barrish (Sleepwalk With Me), the show takes the audience on a ride from Johannesburg to Colorado to backstage on Broadway.
What can the audience expect from the show? Mr. Moran says, “As you will be the first audience to hear this piece, the idea of what to expect remains a mystery even for me. I recently finished up a couple of years playing Sir Robin in Broadway’s Spamalot, where a bunch of silly knights gallop about in search of the Holy Grail. Whatever that is!
Having just turned fifty, in funny and not so funny ways, I’m full of all these questions about meaning and mortality and purpose—still looking for the grail, I suppose. So, in the most basic terms, you can expect a rather short guy standing center stage seducing you with a combo of ‘stand-up’ and carefully crafted words centered on travel adventures, an encounter with an African refugee, a death in the family, and the meaning of it all.
A discussion and reception with the artists follows the performance.
Tickets are $25. To purchase tickets, call (914) 698-0098 or visit www.emelin.org.
