Theatrical genius Ken Roht’s annual fundraisers for the 99-cent show, while not as elaborately produced as the shows themselves, are almost as legendary. While my favorite fundie-wonders thus far have been his low-key, “unplugged” retoolings of famous albums (like last year’s Song to a Seagull), this year’s could be a real hootenanny.
Two more of alt-theater’s finest stylists (Robert Prior of the Ramayana 2K4 and the brilliant Laural Meade) will face off in Director vs. Director, a self-described “party-event” at the newly renovated Bootleg Theatre at Beverly & Alvarado. A swath of amazing performers + instant spectacle + the greatest performance/party space in town + cocktails and it benefits the best holiday show in town? Now that’s $15 well spent!
Oh, while 99-centers are famously family-friendly, this fundraiser is (ahem) adults only. Caveat Barney…
