The Orange Person
Rady&Bloom, in association with IRT's 3B Development Series, presents The Orange Person

With an original book written by director Jeremy Bloom ("Stylish and inventive" - Theatermania) and Brian Rady who also plays the title role ("entertaining, hilarious, seamless" - Happiest Medium), the production also features original songs by Rady&Bloom and singer-songwriter Laura Dunn ("Bjorkish runaway melodies" - music critic Mark Mayer), all performed by a stellar and eccentric host of performers, vocalists and multi-instrumentalists.

"a quirky tale of a bright-orange baby born in a Texas border town, told in a style that merges docutheater with eclectic concert."
- Time Out New York

"The cast and creative team conjures more stage magic with a spare set and an assortment of lamps, placards and lawn chairs than most Broadway musicals muster with budgets a hundred times the size. ...a genuine, but not sentimental, tale of growing up orange in a podunk Texan town. ...homespun theatre done right  with foot stomping songs, quirky humor and fistfuls of charm."
- The American Shot

performers: Ashley Biel, Laura Dunn, Dana Kaplan-Angle, Robert Lavenstein, Ellen O'Meara, Madalyn McKay, Jose Paz, Brian Rady, Kirk Siee, Catherine Brookman, Joe White; designed by Olga Mill (costumes), Chris Morris (sets), and Christopher Weston (lighting); makeup design by glam-rock's Chelsea Monet Dunaway

Rady&Bloom is a play company that creates theater works from scratch led by the collaboration of Jeremy Bloom and Brian Rady. With an inclusive spectrum of mediums and performer backgrounds, Rady&Bloom makes stories using narrative and experimental approaches, blending word, gesture, music, site-specificity and spectacle. Each performance is a celebration and an invocation: party meets epic meets chorale meets ethnography. Past Rady&Bloom collaborations include La Boheme (Spoken), a full length spoken version of Puccini's libretto at The Flea and at The Cell, adapted by Rady, and conceived and directed by Bloom; The Green Knight at 45 Bleecker, an original play by Brian Rady based on the myth of Sir Gawain, directed in pink by Bloom; Anchor Women, an under-the-covers study of television's ladies created by Rady, directed by Bloom; Live Mermaids Live, adapted and directed by Bloom, performed with songwriting by Rady and produced by artparty theater company; and most recently The Orange Person written and developed by Rady&Bloom with banjoist Laura Dunn (returning to NYC by popular demand May 19-26, 2012 at IRT).
