Corporate RockRead the Offoffoff review
At Rolling Stone Magazine 30-year-old copyeditor Dylan can't get any of his own esoteric pieces on worthy, but obscure, alternative rock bands published by the magazine's brass. When pretty boy Nathaniel, the hottest scribe at the 'zine (who prefers Britney Spears to real music), gets abducted by the French mafia for gambling debts, Dylan spots an opportunity to change the face of the modern music industry or at least the direction of the magazine he once worshipped. After concocting an elaborate ruse to implant his own stories into Nathaniel's columns, Dylan soon finds himself in dire straits as the minions of the corporate overworld, and criminal underworld close in around him.
"This play has a rebellious rock attitude about art consumerism that really appeals to me," says director Timothy Haskell. "I want to emphasize that in the staging. I plan on evoking the spirit of seeing a rock concert with the lights, costumes and tons of loud rock music. The story will be told, but it will be very kinetic!" Timothy Haskell recently created and directed the very popular "fightsical" Road House that transferred from Off-Off-Broadway to Off-Broadway earlier this year. He will be going back to his "action-play" formula with an original action play starring martial artists 14-years old and younger opening next summer.
Corporate Rock stars Travis York (The Internationalists), Dorian Missick (starring opposite Denzel Washington and Jeffrey Wright in this summer's remake of The Manchurian Candidate, stars in the upcoming 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, and played Hugh Grant's best friend in Two Weeks Notice), Natalia Hernandez, Charles Jang, Gerry Sheridan and Road House alums Jamie Benge, Aaron Haskell, Kellie Arens and Nick Arens.
Will Bennett worked as a journalist and freelance writer in New York for several years before earning his Master of Arts in Writing for Performance at the University of London. The rest of the artistic team includes Paul Smithyman (sets), Nick Hohn (lights), Sarah Iams (costumes), DeeAnn Weir (fight choreography), Vincent Olivieri (sound), and Rebeca Ramirez (dance choreography).
