CALIGULA MAXIMUS

Presented in collaboration with Lady Circus and The House of Yes,  Caligula Maximus feat. Kayvon Zand,  was a combination of nudity, frivolity and 70’s-inspired decadence, the show is set on the last night of the notorious emperor’s life. Originally staged to critical acclaim at La Mama, the sold-out play with music was overhauled as an all-singing, all-dancing spectacle flanked by some of the biggest names in the New York Underground.

FARRAGUT NORTH

This 2008 play, written by Beau Willimon, was loosely based on the 2004 Democratic Primary campaign of Howard Dean.  A classic tale of hubris set against a contemporary landscape about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it. It premiered at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City directed by Doug Hughes and starred Chris Noth (Sex and the City, John Gallagher, Jr. (Spring Awakening) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno).  The production then transferred to the Geffen Playhouse in June 2009 with Noth, Thirlby, and Chris Pine (Star Trek).  Currently, the play is being made into a feature film, The Ides of March.

MATT & BEN

The smash off-Broadway hit Matt & Ben at the famed PS 122. The show was hailed by The New York Times as a “deliciously spiteful sendup of Hollywood’s naked emperors in general and Mr. Damon and Mr. Affleck in particular.” The two-woman play depicted the two guys (played by Brenda Withers and Mindy Kaling) as competitive knuckleheads: Ben the vacuous good-time guy, Matt the unbearably earnest do-right.  Beginning its life at the New York Fringe Festival, the show went on to unprecedented ten-month run at PS122 before heading out to Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto.
