Quotes & Highlights
This is the second time Custom Made has produced the siblings Sedaris’ look at the Amish, alcoholics, and finding oneself in a changing world. _ Liz_ was an enormous hit in 2008 for Custom Made, setting box office records that still stand, and since then eager patrons have been asking, “When is Liz coming back?” Feeling that everyone needed a good laugh, Artistic Director Brian Katz responded with “Summer 2011 – assuming the world isn’t burning in the Rapture!” As we all seem to be here in one piece, Liz will happen as promised, and the hilarity will be heard up and down Gough St.
Everyone’s favorite Squeamish nun is back!
Sister Elizabeth Donderstock makes delicious cheeseballs. Everyone loves the cheeseballs; in fact they are all that the religious community of Clusterhaven has left.
But when Liz isn’t appreciated anymore, she decides to try the outside world. There she’ll meet Ukrainians with cockney accents, restaurants run by recovering alcoholics, a certain peanut, and her own self worth. But will her cheeseballs ever taste the same again?
This hilarious comedy could only come from the devilish minds of both David (This American Life, Me Talk Pretty One Day_) and Amy (_Strangers with Candy) Sedaris.
Featuring an amazing cast including Bay Area vet Stephen Pawley (TheatreWorks, Word for Word) and NYC transplant and BATCC award-winner, Marie O’Donnell (Late Night with David Letterman_), along with Custom Made regular Tavis Kammet (Candide, Durang Me!_) and sketch-comedian Allison Page (Killing My Lobster), The Book of Liz is the perfect summer comedy: hysterically funny, surprisingly touching, and full of the biting wit of David Sedaris, combined with the naughty, but sweet, absurdity of his sister Amy. The Book of Liz is directed by Gabriel A. Ross, who recently staged The Actor’s Nightmare as part of the BATCC nominated Durang Me!
