One of off-Broadways longest running gags, er, plays begins a run at downtowns Soul Invictus Gallery & Cabaret tonight. Its a safe bet that curiosity will make for a healthy draw given a name like Vampire Lesbians of Sodom.
Charles Buschs ambitious piece follows the lives of two vampiresses who traverse history to determine whether a succubus or a sacrificial virgin-turned-succubus will be the victor. From ancient Sodom to modern Las Vegas, the blood-sucking femmes fatale duke out their love-hate relationship onstage. The production is playing with another Busch beauty, Sleeping Beauty or Coma, the tale of a 60s supermodel who drank the Kool-Aid.
The shows, under the aegis of Phoenix Rising Artists Collaborative, make their local debuts at 8 p.m. Friday, November 6, at Soul Invictus.
Fri., Nov. 6, 10 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 7, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 8, 6 p.m.; Fri., Nov. 13, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 14, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 15, 6 p.m.; Fri., Nov. 20, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 21, 8 p.m., 2009
