This is the New York premier of the workshop productions with went up for three days in November at Kentucky Repertory Theatre. An adaptation and translation of Buchner's classic play using mask, puppets, folk, acapella and deathmetal music to tell the story of Woyzeck's descent into madness and murder. The production is heavily musical until the very last scene, where the sheriff speaks clearly of the crime, not singing in any way, dressed in contemporary costume. Then we wonder if "Woyzeck" was ripped out of today's tabloid murder headlines… or set in Woyzeck's hallucinatory world of late-1800's Germany... or is it Norway? A workshop production of Gorilla Rep, written and directed by Christopher Carter Sanderson, directed by Christopher Carter Sanderson, choreographed by Erin Porvaznik, costumes by Mary Anne Davis, lighting design by: Ryan Hauenstein. Cast of nine. Christopher Carter Sanderson founded New York's Gorilla Repertory Theater Company in 1992.
