Lord Oxford Brings You the Second American Revolution
by Christopher Borg
You will see the work of several past IT Award nominees in Brooklyn at the venerable Brick Theater, as they present Lord Oxford Brings You the Second American Revolution, Live! being
the necessary and appropriate response to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
II's suppression of the freedoms and dignity of the European-American
settlers and their descendants in the Royal Eastern American Colonies
and the inordinate conferring of special favours and privileges on the
merciless Indian savages and the former Negro slaves, in the year Two
Thousand and Eight, a bouffon-inspired, satire-laced political fantasia.
by Robert Honeywell, Directed by Moira Stone, the play imagines an
America that lost the Revolutionary war and is under the thumb of the
British empire. At a "live taping" of The Lord Oxford Hour, faithful
orphan sidekick Patty O'Pattycake and a merry band of actors distract
the Colonials from their worries through songs, skits and tableaux.
as Democracy in America meets Alice in Wonderland meets Cabaret,
Honeywell brings back many of his actor/collaborators from the 2007 IT
Award-Nominated Greed: A Musical Love $tory ("Outstanding Production of
a Musical"). The cast, which features many past IT Award nominees
includes: Gyda Arber, Lynn Berg, Audrey Crabtree, Rasheed Hinds, Robert
Honeywell, Iracel Rivero and Alyssa Simon and the design team includes:
Robert Eggers (IT Award Nominee), Fab Shim (costumes), Mick O'Brien
(sound) and Bessie Award- winner Joe Levasseur (lighting).
