    Road House: The Stage Version of the Cinema Classic that Starred Patrick Swayze, Except This One Stars Taimak From The 80's Cult Classic 'The Last Dragon' Wearing A Blonde Mullet Wig

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Road House, the stage version, is a deconstructed, and comical, version of this modern day western B-movie from 1989. It's about an internationally revered bouncer hired to clean up a small town dive only to get sucked into the local politics, biting off more than he can chew . . . or has he? This will be a completely kinetic production using cinematic techniques: miniature sets, foley artists and breath-taking action sequences and bar room brawls unlike anything ever seen in the live theatre. This heightened style is designed to highlight the somewhat suspect elements of the film as well as Hollywood action films in general . . . and also to blow the lid off the place. "I have no intention of 'camping' this up. The film on stage, trust me, will be enough." Says director Timothy Haskell. "There will be some distinct stylistic choices, this is not some campy musical. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A MUSICAL! We are calling it a 'Fightsical' instead. Anywhere there might typically be some tongue-and-cheek musical number people are gonna start fighting." Haskell goes on to say, "I want to get to the bottom of why films like this remain terribly compelling, and why so many seemingly smart people that I know can quote entire scenes." Timothy Haskell will be directing Road House starring Taimak Guarriello (pronounced Tie Mock). He is a martial arts master (7th degree black belt), a NY State kickboxing champion, personal trainer to Madonna (and was the martial arts coordinator on her "Drowned World Tour"), and of course, was Bruce LeeRoy in the 80's cult classic "The Last Dragon". Since, he has done extensive film and television.
