two takes on Linas Phillips' <i>Lasagna</i> Jan 16, 2009

To miss Linas Phillips’ Lasagna is to pass up the season’s freshest helping of experimental theater. Linas has shone a light on himself before on stage and screen, but never to such expansive effect. It helps that his companion in that unflinching light is Jim Fletcher, an artist and performer of unmatched warmth, charisma and humanity. But Jim’s presence would mean nothing if his (reciprocated) brotherly love for Linas were not so imperative, so disarmingly real.

Linas Phillips at OtB Jan 16, 2009

I just saw Linas Phillip's Lasagna or: How I learned to stop slipping towards the prison of permanent darkness at On the Boards tonight. The piece, which was written by film maker and Stranger Genius Award recipient Phillips and his co-star, New York actor Jim Fletcher, is as intelligent and moving exploration of contemporary male angst as one could expect to see on the stage or at the local movie theater.

&nbsp;&ldquo;What can I do to help you stop screaming?&nbsp;&rdquo; Jan 16, 2009

 “ ”¦a wet balloon filled with warm clams ”  ”¦that one is going to stick with me for awhile. Fantastic musings on sex, moments with snakes that mean everything and nothing, the removing of hair pins, a white shirt that says  ”˜Rainbow Times’, a moving yet simple dance sequence that illuminated this world, an alien bringing lasagna, the fun combination of humans and television screens, and a lecture from Whitley Strieber’s The Key that brought pasta eating to an art form ”¦the details form layers in this world, yet what do they mean? How do they come together?

Also in the recipe for lasagna... Jan 12, 2009

We've been talking a lot about Linas Phillips' Lasagna that's opening on Thursday night and how lucky we are to have both him and Jim Fletcher in from New York City to make this show happen. What you may not know is that the show also features the lovely former-Seattlite dancer Leah Schrager and a live score by local favorite Lori Goldston.

Any way you slice it, this show is going to be amazing. More info and tickets here.

Flashback | Karaoke with the cast of Gatz Jan 2, 2009

Jim Fletcher - about to take to the OtB stage in Lasagna - made his first appearance here as Jay Gatsby in Elevator Repair Service's Gatz. Unwinding with the company after each 7 1/2 hour show was always an experience, as evidenced by this photo from their final night of karaoke at Ozzie's.
