Frank Blocker does an amazing job of drawing you into this story of colorful characters. We were completely engrossed in the story, almost forgetting we were watching one man acting his butt off to bring us a variety of characters using his voice, pose, and words to set them apart from each other!! A joy that I highly recommend. Thanks, Frank Blocker, and Goldstar for turning us on to this cool NYC theater experience at a wonderful price.
Evil (typical) New York landlord “Killer” Joe is plotting against the tenants of his building. He’s already gotten rid of one, and another has passed under suspicious circumstances. Lorna Breedlove, a septuagenarian sex addict in recovery and den mother of the building, will not be moved. The rest of the tenants will follow her lead: Thomas the Log Cabin accountant, middle-aged stoner JP, and repentant retiring priest Father Benedict to name a few.
All is happening in a race with the new subway line, bringing more change and more people to the turbulent surroundings. Killer Joe enlists sadistic lawyer (redundant) Roveena, a praying mantis breaking the very laws she swore to uphold. So Joe takes matters into his own hands without noting the danger of one’s own petard.
The tenants battle through the red tape of City government and a slightly corrupt legal system, but as all true New Yorkers will explain: “Leave Manhattan? Not on your life!”
All 17 characters and most lines spoken have been witnessed or heard in New York City. Any correlation to any NYC landlord vs. tenant situation is purely coincidental, yet inevitable.
