iTheatre of the Absurd

People have been whispering about actor Greg Lutz’s upcoming directorial debut. Seems Lutz has cast fellow actor Neil Cohen, who’s typically found emoting on stage in an evening gown (and occasionally a gingham dirndl), as a man in iTheatre Collaborative’s Eat the Taste. What’s more, word on the street has it that Lutz has la Cohen pinned beneath erstwhile punk-rock star (and former New Times staffer) Robert X. Planet. Can it be true?

The Pirandellian play by Tony-winning Urinetown author Greg Kotis is about, well, Greg Kotis -- or at least a parallel-universe Greg Kotis who’s kidnapped by government agents and made to write a one-man musical about and starring former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. When Kotis wrote Eat the Taste in 2004, he set it in a post-Bush-administration future at which we’ve nearly arrived. Scary.
