Perhaps the most touching dramas are ones that deal with families reuniting. New York City's Dixon Place presents such a story when it premieres Ken Bullock's Party Devil Oct. 13-28. The production began performances Oct. 10.
Party Devil tells the story of Princess Sahara, a woman of refinement, grace, and great taste. She has resolved to find the daughter she gave up at birth. She encounters many curious characters on her journey, while staying true to her main concern: to stop the ascent of gay gangster rapper Mint T.
Director-developer Eric Silberman helms the show with original music by Roger Pauletta. Taking on the role of the Princess, as well as all the other characters in the production, is Ken Bullock. With other works like My Life Is a Show, Valley of the Stagestruck, and Cooking and Modeling under his belt, Bullock is no stranger to the one-man (or woman) genre. He also provides the lyrics for the presentation.
