My play is called “Polar Bear Service & Repair,” a buddy, roadtrip comedy starring Adam & Justin,  two of my favorite kids who are members of the Project, and directed by Sean Kenealy.

“Who are you?!”

“Who are you?!”
“We’re….Batmen.”

Adam Szymkowicz is a mad man — a mad man playwright with a dream to interview every playwright he can get his hands on. So he’s not a mad man you have to be scared of. He’s the good kind of mad man, like Edison or Bell or Einstein or…Batman.

That’s it: Adam Szymkowicz is the playwright Batman.

And I’m his latest interview.

Check out his work too while you’re at it. His play Incendiary has 3 more performances at Wishbone Theatre Collective in Chicago.

“The hammer clicks in place….” but only 3 more times

New headshot. I’m going for “serious, but still a fun guy to hang out with, and maybe a little bit mischievous.”

Hi all,

The production in LA is going very well, and everyone except for this guy is very excited about it. Yes, that’s what is known in the review world as a “pan;” but I can’t help it if I’ve sullied the Greeks with things like sex and swearing. I’m sure they were all pretty puritanical, didn’t fuck around or stuff like that. That must be why their myths are all so dull.

Anyhow, there are 3 performances left. Tonight’s is sold out but there are still tickets left for Friday, June 1, and Saturday, June 2. They are available here. But be quick. There aren’t many left.

And if you attempt to buy tickets but find them all sold out, come to the theater anyway. We’ve had no-shows at every performance, so if we can, we’ll squeeze you in at the last moment.

I will be at all performances, so I hope to see you there.

P.S. Thoughts on that head-shot? Funny background, but that’s my backyard so it seems…appropriate(?)

“….haunted by American dreams, hunted by American dreams.”

Down in the face of God is a real boy at last.

The play opened Friday night to a sold out house, rave reviews, and (apparently) a party that Dionysus himself would have approved of. I fly to LA Tuesday and I’ll be there for the final 2 weeks of the run so come out, see all the hard work AthroughZ put in, and experience this amazing production.

Click here to get your tickets, and get ’em soon! It’s a small house and a very limited run. This coming weekend, May 24-26, is the time to go! For one, I’ll be there and seeing the full production for the FIRST TIME EVER. Also, tix are going fast for the final weekend and we need bodies for those middle shows. And finally, if you don’t attend…..you will be cursed and you won’t know how to deal with that because you haven’t see my play.

Sneak peak time……

See you all next weekend.

 

“….were they telling me to run….”

The trailer has arrived.

Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Then get yourself to Los Angeles for the limited run.
