The play is a series of sketches by combinations of the six actors (it felt like more; they are very versatile!). These are often funny, though sometimes a bit rough. The writing stopped short of connecting to human universals where I thought it...continued

Funny, revealing, kinda poignant. If you hate skinny, pretty girls, don't go see it. It makes being a model seem kinda sad. But they poke fun at it as well. I will probably go see it again.

Description

Modelogues, by Sarah Happel, is a fashionable farce of light and amusing characters that peeks into the sometimes unattractive industry of modeling. Models are self-centered, brainless twits, right? Well, duh. Who knew that having long legs and an ability to walk in stilettos could lead to a career. But, don’t knock the Sasquatch off her runway pedestal before first looking at who propped her up there.

_ Modelogues_ explores society’s views on beauty, fascination with fame, and the colorful cast of characters who make a living off the genetically well-endowed. We visit a huckster agent, a drugged-up roller skating designer, and a Models Anonymous group meeting. We also meet some lesser known industry players, who should hide before they’re institutionalized. Among them are a crazed backstage dresser, a gang of fanatical model groupies, and an Italian party-promoting pimp.

A comedy in two acts, Modelogues is comprised of several monologues and various short scenes. All the characters are played by a six person cast of three women and three men.
