Off The Wall 2008: Reggie Watts - Disinformation
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
14 Nov 2008
Friday, November 14, 2008
The Warhol Theater
8 p.m.
Performed by Reggie Watts
Directed by Tommy Smith

Anthropological humorist Reggie Watts utilizes the latest in presentational technologies to comment on humanity’s refusal to accept an eventual global shift towards unimaginable destruction. A mélange of absurdist storytelling, video imagery, geometric movement sequences and spontaneous musical compositions, Disinformation is a comedic conceptual deconstruction of the human need to understand itself. A staple of the international performance scene, Reggie received the 2006 Andy Kaufman award for comedic performance.

Tickets: $20/ $10 Student

“Watts’ voice is astonishing; it’s sort of Meredith Monk-meets-Mel Blanc and at parts of [‘Disinformation’], it will most certainly blow your mind.”

14 Nov 2008
Witness Mary Shelley's life as she writes Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus—the first "real science fiction" novel – and makes her love affair with the poet, Percy Shelley, and her struggles as a woman of this period– all a part of her story. Is Dr. Frankenstein’s creature the real monster of the tale or does society share the blame?

Based on diaries, letters and the accounts of friends, Mary Shelley and Her Frankenstein is an entertaining, and intriguing insight into the life and work of Gothic literature's most notorious author.

Join the Tuesday Musical Club on "a dreary night in November" for this juicy music drama full of passion, anguish and science run amok.

This world premiere music drama is staged with the artistry of Pittsburgh talent including writer/composer, Shirley Barasch; director, Richard Keitel; musical director, Nancy Gordon Galluzzo; and set designer, Tony Ferrieri.

This original Pittsburgh production is made possible through the generous support of The Pittsburgh Foundation, the Heinz Endowments and the Grable Foundation.
