Chris Pascoe (Justin M. Schlabach) is one of Hollywood's hottest actors - and he now has to tackle his toughest role: Ophelia in an all-male Renaissance-style production of Hamlet on Broadway. Chris should know everything there is to know about playing a woman, based on the advice of his overbearing director (Stefin Woolever), his tightly wound agent Frankie (Clay von Carlowitz), his fierce drag queen cousin Vanilla Latte (Marc Andrew Nuñez), and his one-night-stand-turned-confidant Roberta (Malia Abayon). But Chris still seems to have as little chance at playing a convincing woman as he does at being a serious actor. Additional appearances by The Understudy (Tyler Crozier), The Stage Manager (Andrea Edgerson) and The Legend (Alessio Franko). Written and originally directed by Mitchell VanLandingham.
About Standard ToyKraft
Big thanks to our partners at Standard ToyKraft, who are giving us a home for our shows during our dark months at our regular home in Times Square! Why are we dark in Times Square? Because our lease is funky! #nonprofitarts We'll be back up and running at 151 West 46th in Manhattan in January.
Standard ToyKraft is an artist run theater that offers low-cost performance and rehearsal space as well as a puppet shop and private studios for visual artists. The founders of STK discovered a derelict factory floor located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn With lots of blood, sweat and more tears than any of us care to admit we transformed this old sweatshop into a community organization. At the core Standard Toykraft is a community endeavor. Our community of artists continues to grow in this tough city because, we provide a supportive refuge for the development of work. We also produce many of our own shows and events including puppet slams, variety shows, vaudevillian weirdness and various spectacles for the amusement of our patrons.
