The Milosevics at West of Lenin in Seattle
Musical Satire And Verbatim Documentary Theatre
Created and directed by Pattie Miles Van Beuzekom
In "The Milosevics." The Paradise Theatre School takes a poignant and comedic look at political power using interviews, trial transcripts, and public records to tell the story of Slobodan Milosevic's rise to power and his subsequent trial for crimes against humanity.
This musical satire and verbatim documentary theatre piece examines the dramatic four-year long trial of former president Slobodan Milosevic before the international tribunal in The Hague. The case was controversial from the beginning, Milosevic being the first sitting head of state to be indicted by an international court.
In public, he tried to make western governments think he was a man of peace. In reality, Slobodan Milosevic - Serbia's former dictator - spent much of the 1990s dealing with his spoilt and dysfunctional family, according to secret transcripts of his private phone calls.
The cast includes Charles Duncan (Judge Robinson), Don White (Tito), Camille Hildebrandt (Madeline Albright), Erik Van Beuzekom (Milosevic), Consuelo Aduviso (Mira, Milosevic's wife), Murren Kennedy (Marko,Milosevic's son), Michelle Stay (Wesley Clark), Jose Amador (Milan Babich), Heather Dudley Nollette (Geoffery Nice), K.Brian Neel (Dragoslav Ognjanovic), and Patricia Willestoft (Dragan Vasiljkovic).
