Possibly the most hysterical siblings since the Marx Brothers, Amy and David Sedaris have written The Book of Liz, a zany stage play about discovering your own self-worth. First discovered on NPR, David has since written a series of bestsellers which include Me Talk Pretty One Day, Naked and When You Are Engulfed in Flames. Amy was the star of Comedy Central's Strangers With Candy and continues to be an ubiquitous (and hilarious) presence on film and TV. Together they have written The Book of Liz about the outrageous adventures of Sister Elizabeth Donderstock, a devoted maker of cheeseballs who ventures out of her tiny religious community to encounter a host of colorful characters -- including Ukrainians with cockney accents, restaurants run by recovering alcoholics and a certain talking peanut.

Written by a graduate student who had to cope with several family losses, this play successfully mixed dialogue and dance. I liked the treatment of the play's namesake, the "Man Eater" character, at different stages of her life. Almost everyone in the audience stayed for the talk-back session afterward, a testament to our level of interest in the play. Some people mentioned being repeat attendees.
Custom Made Theatre Company is proud to announce our first Workshop Series production of the season, featuring the work of Associate Artistic Director, Daunielle Rasmussen, and a cast of fourteen actors and dancers. In this provocative piece, dance is used in a symbiotic relationship with the text to tell the story of four people who are coping-or not coping- with loss in their own ways.
Rose is used to getting what she wants and this time its restaurant manager Nate Sanchez. Emotionally estranged from his grief stricken wife, Nate is susceptible prey and embarks on a tumultuous journey through the wilderness of grief where he discovers that he is not the only one lost. Unbeknownst to Rose, her latest conquest will cause her to relive a painful secret she thought long forgotten.
The performance features Sarah Moser, Partick Barresi, Stefin Collins, Luisa Frasconi, Jesse Bie, Kyle Griffiths, Margarita Galindo, Danielle Doyle, Jessica Rudholm, Adrienne Walters, Teri Whipple, Xanadu Bruggers, Vincent P. Rodriguez.
Immediately following the show will be a feedback discussion to support the further growth of this work in progress.
