Joe: The Perfect Man

Posted on Sat, Aug 30, 2008 at 9:39 AM

The stage is generally piled high with corpses at the end of a Shakespearean tragedy, but by the time the titular character of “Joe: the Perfect Man” gets through with “Macbeth” it looks more like scene of a particularly rowdy kid’s birthday party. You see, Joe (played by the effervescent Rachelle Elie looking like a cross-dressing grandma), is an irrepressible, off-the-wall, out-of-work teacher who dreams of treading the boards. His take on Shakespeare requires a massive rewrite to include interpretive dance, opera, audience participation (with some pretty game and surprising talented audience members) and copious amounts of glitter. The show is laugh-out-loud funny but also surprisingly touching.

Show Times: Saturday Aug. 30 at 3:45, Sunday Aug. 31 at 8:30, Monday Sept. 1 at 6:45, Friday Sept. 5 at 10:00, Saturday Sept. 6 at 3:35 and Sunday Sept. 7 at 5:30 at The Neptune Studio Theatre. $10.
