It Happens In May: Colorful World

Well, gang. We've got ourselves a venue and schedule for Nosedive's next full-length play. Colorful World will go up for four weekends in May (8-31, Thursday through Saturday) at 8 p.m. at the 78th Street Theatre Lab, Second Floor (where we staged PULP and a number of other shows now) on 236 West 78th Street.

I just sent Pete the second batch of rewrites and am very excited about this show. It's quite different from anything we've staged before.

I'll give you more details about the production as they unfold. But for now, mark your freakin' calendars, folks. Colorful World goes up in May at the 78th Street Theatre Lab.

Nosedive Productions Presents

Colorful World

(The Superhero Play)

A new play by James Comtois

Loosely inspired by Watchmen by Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons and
The Dark Knight series by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson

Directed by Pete Boisvert

In 1988, the world discovered a man who was indestructible, impervious to pain, and able to destroy a tank with his mind.

In the early-nineties, a trend where people dressed up in flashy costumes and fought crime took the nation by storm.

Now it's 2005. The Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are still standing. The Iraq War is coming to a close. Hurricane Katrina has decimated New Orleans. And several former costumed crimefighters realize their marks on the world are more akin to members of hair metal bands.

A drunk in a cape,

James "Your Hero" Comtois

I heard an early read-thru of the script. This is going to be an f'n great time of a show! Seriously. I can't wait.

Oh, thanks, Qui! And thanks for your help on that reading (particularly on the train ride home afterwards). Yeah, I'm feeling good with these rewrites.

And of course, I'm pretty psyched to see Fight Girl Battle World in March!
