America seems to never get enough of serial killers. Bo Jo, the compulsive murderer making a supreme effort to stop in Dance Upon Nothing will get an extended run in the world premiere comedy-drama by Greg Suddeth, now playing Los Angeles' Blue Alliance Theatre through Oct. 3. Frequent Suddeth collaborator Anthony Barnao directs.
All Bo Jo really wanted to do was meet women by being a rock and roll drummer. Instead, the mental and physical abuse from his cruel father turned him in a different direction — now whenever he meets a woman he likes, he kills her. Having finally realized that killing is wrong, but still afraid of the law's punishment, Bo Jo devises a way to stop his compulsion and cheat the police of their retribution.
Suddeth is the author of Being of Sound Mind, End of the Watch, Toe To Toe and Very Cherry and Extra Clean.
Starring in Dance Upon Nothing are Jason Waters, Andy Hirsh, Kurt Caceres (PBS' "American Family"), Kevin Fabian and Julie Shimer.
Tickets are $12. The Blue Sphere Alliance at the Lex is located at 6760 Lexington Avenue in Hollywood. For reservations, call (323) 957-5782. — By Christine Ehren
