Great news for folks who missed DEAD END DUMMY at Coney Island USA during its three week run. This week, we move to the Cafe at La MaMa (a natural spiritual home for this experimental play); and open this Friday. So you have six more chances!
Written by Coney Island USA’s Founder and Artistic Director Dick D. Zigun, Dead End Dummy is an expressionistic time trip that takes you into the mind of a disturbed vaudeville ventriloquist, played by Sideshows by the Seashore’s Scott Baker – who actually performs ventriloquism in the role. His journey takes him from vaudeville and melodrama, through gramophones and silent films, old time radio, and 50s television and ultimately a Quixotic attempt at a vaudeville revival. Along the way, he meets his nemesis Thomas Edison (Douglas Mackrell, The Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel), and is separated from the love of his life (singer Poor Baby Bree, PoorBabyBree.com).
The show features a live musical score, played on cello, piano, uke and toy xylophone by Becca Bernard, and was directed by me Trav S.D. .
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council
