In 1966, proto-performance artist, Kendrick Washington, stood before an audience in Los Angeless Coronet Theater and held up a large mirror, aimed at the crowd. For an hour. Washingtons performance ended when an audience member (one of the few who remained) threw a shoe that busted the actors mirror.
The response to Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowens [title of show] has been better -- perhaps because the playwrights and performers involved in this production are holding up a mirror to themselves. A figurative mirror, that is, as [title of show] is a musical about two New York songwriters who are writing a new musical about two New York songwriters who are writing a new musical. The show wowed Broadway audiences and critics last fall, and ought to go over well with Phoenix crowds, as well: the Arizona Theater Company version is staged by the same team that created ATCs acclaimed adaptation Hair from last season.
