David Lantham, Paul Boocock, and Gary Schwartz (of the downtown comedy/performance group, Premium Bob) bring their "American Style" comedy to late nights at HERE with Laguna Beach, Mar. 14-May 2.
Laguna Beach, a late night serial written by Lantham, will consist of eight episodes, four interwoven story lines and 20 different "oddball" characters.
Laguna Beach features a bevy of downtown actors including Obie winners Joanna P. Adler (Benita Canova, The Boys in the Basement), and James Urbaniak (The Universe, Mamba's Daughters). Also included in the cast: Boocock, Richard Caliban, Jeremy Dobrish, D.J. Mendel, Chuck Montgomery, Sean Runnette, Steven Ratazzi, David Letwin, Henry Caplan, Laurena Allen, Paul Urcioli, Rebecca Finnegan and Alison White.
Premium Bob garnered critical attention for their show American Style. Sheathed in brown delivery-boy outfits, the "Bobs" (Lantham and Boocock) dished out doses of pop-culture references in quick little vignettes, satirizing everything from "Pottery Barn girl-friends" to Shaft.
Laguna Beach, hits HERE Saturdays at midnight, Mar. 14-May 2. For reservations or more information call (212) 647-0202. -- By Sean McGrath
