The cast of Weekend at Barry’s/Lesbian Lighthouse is on vacation—but that doesn’t mean you should have to suffer! In this “Greatest Hits” installment of everyone’s favorite black box cult classic about the highs and lows of making experimental theater in late-stage capitalism, Barry and Co. will take audiences on a tour of their best summer hijinx! Using new words and music stands, get ready for some hot and heavy beach reads, read to you by some sun-kissed cuties. Part 1 of an epic dark comedy about the World On Terror. The nation celebrates the defeat of the Global Villain, but things aren’t so simple. In the smoke-filled rooms behind the halls of power, the search for the new Villain begins. In The Empire Live! an ensemble of actors transports us all over the World On Terror: the effects we see and the things we don’t. The plans and dominoes and butterfly wings–and the ordinary people caught in the resulting chaos. This is Part 1 of the larger piece, focusing on the perspective of the government as they pivot from one Global Villain to the next. In future parts, we will see the many ways consent is manufactured and war leads to occupation and continued cycles of violence. Should go without saying but: this is Based On a True Story
