All-Male OEDIPUS REX
A vibrant rendition of the ancient Greek classic, The Faux-Real Theatre Company in conjunction with Verse Theater Manhattan presents an all-male OEDIPUS REX, 'exactly as Sophocles intended it!' With a cast of 12 utilizing the performance techniques of the ancient Greeks, Faux-Real presents a 'traditional' rendition of Sophocles' OEDIPUS REX that says 'what was considered traditional 2400 years ago is off-the-hook today.' Incorporating the colorful aesthetic of these ancient performances and utilizing a broad physical style of acting powered by live music, songs and dancing, ALL-MALE OEDIPUS REX looks beyond the 'fate versus free will' interpretations of this classic, to explore the alluring underbelly of this primal text. Their heightened approach reveals what is terrifying and vital in this most tragic of tragedies, enhancing the story's power to roil our subconscious and awaken the heroes within. Founding Artistic Director of The Faux-Real Theatre Company, Mark Greenfield has created such shows as FUNBOX Times Square, William Shakespeare's Haunted House and Htebcam (A Backwards Re-working of Macbeth). In addition to his work with Faux-Real, Mark was a writer for the Drew Barrymore film Whip It, and the lead actor in the Amir Naderi film VEGAS: Based on a True Story (to be released this fall). Greenfield toured the country for two-years with IMAGO the Theatre Mask Ensemble, and he played Arlecchino for five-years with the Southern Italian Commedia dell'Arte company I Giullari Di Piazza. Door proceeds to benefit The Actors Fund for HOWL! HELP.
