The show, which opened Sept. 5, was created by Roy Cruz, who appears in the show with David Dean Bottrell, Drew Droege, Ron Morehouse, Steve Hasley, Mike Rose and Trent Walker. Ezra Weisz directs, and Sandy Mooney choreographs. According to press notes, "Meryl Streep's prodigious body of film work serves as the inspiration and fascination for Streep Tease, an all-male cast's re-interpretation of some of the revered actresses' most iconic scenes. Included are monologues from the comedies 'The Devil Wears Prada' and 'Death Becomes Her,' the thriller 'The River Wild' and the serious drama of 'Out of Africa' and 'Silkwood.' Though drawn from the dramatic and comedic 'Canon of Cinema Streep,' all of the scenes evolve into a hilarious, outlandish, kooky and sometimes campy romp through Streep's film repertoire."
Added show dates are May 8 at 10 PM, May 9 at 7:30 PM, May 16 at 7:30 PM at May 22 at 10 PM.
The show performs at The Bang Improv Theatre, located at 457 North Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles. For tickets ($15) call (323) 653-6886 or visit www.bangstudio.com.
