Philadelphia’s best revue of new performing arts returns for another season January 13 and 14, 2017, at Moving Arts of Mount Airy.
Every actor has experienced theater critics who got things a little wrong. Here’s their chance to peel their own onion.
I asked cast members of the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium (IRC), Philadelphia’s absurdist theatre (since 2006), founded by artistic director Tina Brock, what Ionesco’s RHINOCEROS brought up for them as actors and as people. The range of responses is as astounding as this production. A big thank you to everyone who participated in this Phindie interview.
Director Tina Brock brings spot-on casting, lightning-quick pacing, and non-stop hysteria (of both the panicked and hilarious varieties) to Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium’s FringeArts production of Eugène Ionesco’s RHINOCEROS. The devastating consequences of mindless conformity, social apathy, and turning a blind eye to a growing threat are the important themes of the darkly comic Theater of the Absurd masterpiece.
Theater writer Jessica Foley is seeing 20 Fringe plays in 20 days. Why is she starting with Ionesco’s Rhinoceros?
