Bouffon Glass Menajoree
A sacrilegious and unapologetic parody of an American Classic
Gentlemen callers beware!
Tennessee Williams’ classic tale is ripped wide open in this twisted and outrageous bouffon parody with a new ending determined by an audience member every night.
Written in collaboration with the cast Lynn Berg (Tony & Tina’s Wedding), Audrey Crabtree (ComedyCentral), Aimee Leigh German (Opening Baywatch Butt) and director Eric Davis (Red Bastard, Cirque du Soleil), Bouffon Glass Menajoree is a dark comedic parody of the Tennessee Williams’s masterpiece, performed in the style of bouffon. Employing this time-honored tradition of undermining the establishment through verbal and physical satire, BGM is a satire not only of traditional American theatre, but of American society, the family unit, and the audience themselves. The production involves direct interaction with the audience: one lucky member will even play the role of the gentleman caller every night, determining how the show ends. This show is certain to surprise, shock and delight.
