Brick Theater Looks for "Moral Values" in Brooklyn This Summer

News   Brick Theater Looks for "Moral Values" in Brooklyn This Summer The Brick Theatre, a rising performance space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is banking that there's plenty of theatricality to be found in ethics and mores. From June 3 to July 3, it will present the "Moral Values Festival," in which it promises to explore, exploit and expose America's moral values.

Among the scheduled highlights:

Dear Dubya: Patriotic Love Letters to Whitehouse.org. John Devore, lead writer of the parody site whitehouse.org, reads his best (and worst!) reader e-mail.

• The first authorized adaptation of Philip Jose Farmer's legendary 1960s cult novel "A Feast Unknown."

• An epic film noir multi-media extravaganza, World Gone Wrong, with a six running 16-millimeter film projectors, and actors living through film clips and recorded audio.

My Year of Porn, one woman's real-life adventures while producing a documentary on pornography. • Ladies' Auxiliary Telephone Bee, a one-night only event in which politicized performers call activists, specialists, and interested parties on all sides of a common debate to interview them live about their experiences.  A cross between a live radio call-out show and Comedy Central's "Crank Yankers."

• Trav S.D. (author of the book No Applause—Just Throw Money) and his new play, Misshapen Jack, the Nebraska Hunchback.

• The first pairing of legendary downtown vaudevillians Red Bastard and Zero Boy in their self-titled show Zero Boy & Red Bastard.

• The newest installment in the critically acclaimed "Bizarre Science Fantasy" series, titled The Perfect Girl, where "theatre meets 50s hygiene film and brain-switching sci-fi."

Complete festival participants, dates and times will be released in the coming weeks. Tickets to each show are $10 and are available by calling SmartTix at (212) 868-4444 or online at www.smarttix.com.

The Brick Theater is located at 575 Metropolitan Avenue (between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Brick and its non-profit company, The Brick Theater, Inc. were founded in September of 2002 by Robert Honeywell and Michael Gardener.  Formerly an auto-body shop, a storage space and a yoga center, this brick walled garage was refurbished into a dance/theater complex.

The Summer Festival series began in 2004 with "The Hell Festival."
