News   The Weiner Monologues, Using Greek Tragedy to Explore Anthony Weiner Sexting Scandal, Will Play NYC's Access Theater
 
The Factory will present The Weiner Monologues, a new work using Greek tragedy to explore the sexting scandal of American politician and former U.S. representative Anthony Weiner, Nov. 6-10 at the Access Theater in Manhattan.

Co-created by John Oros and director Jonathan Harper Schlieman, performances will be offered Nov. 6-10 at 8 PM as well as Nov. 9-10 at 2 PM.

The cast includes Devin James Heater as Anthony Weiner and Liana Wendy Sarapas as Weiss/Marilyn/Leathers with P. Tyler Britt, David M DeLeon, Christopher Gizzi, Esther Ko, Sarah Smyth and Jillian Stevens.

According to the show's Indiegogo campaign, "Anthony Weiner was a rising star in the Democratic Party until his online exploits ended his career. Then he ran for mayor, and it looked like he would be back on top, until his junk was in the news again. Using Greek tragedy as a model and the ups and downs of Weiner's career as an entry point, The Weiner Monologues is a conversation about the personal and communal in the age of the Internet. Through found text, live song, dance, video and the use of smart phone technology as a narrative device, TWM goes beyond the headlines and double entendres to the core of Weiner's escapades. Also, there's a lot of dick jokes."

Other members of the creative team include production stage manager Kimberlyn Alava, stage manager Lexi Quillen, executive videographer Daigoro Hirahata, chief media executive Jesse Reyes, set designer Norihito Moriya, costume designer Caitlin Cisek, lighting designers Zoey Russo and Maria Frantz, technical director Zoey Russo and graphic designer Theadora Hadzi. Joel Bassin produces.

The Access Theater is located at 380 Broadway. For more information and tickets, visit TheWeinerMonologues.com.
