Joe Brancato returns to direct at Theatre At St. Clements, with an opening night set for Aug. 23. The remounting coincides with the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Theatre of the Ridiculous.
Drop Dead Perfect follows the outrageous downward spiral of wealthy and eccentric mistress Idris Seabright, played by Quinton. A visit from a mysterious stranger resembling her long-lost love prompts her to become unhinged; comic mayhem ensues.
"She’s a gargoyle of a gal who is murderously psychotic. I can bring so much to the role," commented the Drama Desk-winning actor in an earlier press statement. Quinton has appeared in more than 75 productions from the Ridiculous Theatrical Company, where he has worked as an actor, director and costume designer.
Joining Quinton, the cast of Drop Dead Perfect is made up of Jason Cruz, Jason Edward Cook and Timothy C. Goodwin. The 90-minute comedy is produced by Penguin Rep Theatre, Morton Wolkowitz, Barbara Freitag and Jamie deRoy.
