Two years ago, Scott Rabinowitz and the late Danielle Surrette created their late-night show “Crime Scene.” Now, Slasky 2000: The Second Anniversary CRIME SCENE Prime Time Spectacular will play at the Sacred Fools Theater in Hollywood, July 16. It is produced for the Sacred Fools Theater Company by Scott Rabinowitz, Gerald McClanahan, and Brad Friedman.
Crime Scene became a cult favorite among audiences in Hollywood, as it spoofed all areas of entertainment, focusing on the crime and mystery genre. About fifty actors will participate in the second anniversary show. Live music will be provided by Patty Lund and the Crime Scene Orchestra. There will be a special appearance by specialty juggler Michael Rayner, Urban Clown.
Some of the favorite sketches and musical numbers from last season will be performed, including “The Honeymurders,” about a bus driver, his friend that works in the sewers, and their wives; “A Chorus Line-Up,” murder backstage at a musical; “Who Killed Simon Thaddeus Mulberry Pew?”, a parody of Dr. Seuss involving a mean kid with a plastic bag over his head; and “It’s a Wonderful Death,” with Scott Rabinowitz taking over for Jimmy Stewart. Also like last year’s anniversary show, the performance will include the “Slasky Awards.”
Sacred Fools Theatre is located at 660 N. Heliotrope Dr, Hollywood. It is between Normandie and Vermont and east of the Melrose Ave exit of the 101 freeway. All tickets are $10. For reservations and information, call (310) 281- 8337, or check out their website at www.SacredFools.org/crimescene.
