Rhino ending switcharoo, Feb 17

Rhino ending switcharoo, Feb 17

The Crooked Mouth waves goodbye to Rhino 2013 on Sunday, February 17th at 7:00pm, not the previously boasted about Sunday afternoon.

What does that mean? The show's at 7.

When is it? It's at 7:00!!!

Is John Starrs still in the afternoon? Why yes he is, he just starts a little later, around three thirty.

Will Scott Vehill be with John? Why yes he will.

When's The Crooked Mouth? IT'S AT SEVEN.

Can I do everything on Sunday, the closing day, that I want to do? Why yes you can, I think you can, I hope you can.

Did the rhino brain trust cause this schedule flux on purpose just to test my commitment to the project? No, they didn't. They are working night and day, using all the tools god gave them to make it work out for you and yours.

Can I trust the accuracy of this news? Yes. Yes. Absolutely.

Will they play anything special for me? We think they will, we know they will...so say we all.

Beau and Troy in The Boho Dance

The Crooked Mouth's own Beau O'Reilly and Troy Martin (with the lovely and talented John Starrs) will perform The Boho Dance at The Poetry Foundation, March 10 & 11. The Boho Dance imagines a conversation between Walt Whitman and Allen Ginsberg. With poet John Starrs as Whitman and playwright Beau O’Reilly as Ginsberg, comedy and entertainment ensue.

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, and I contain multitudes,” bellows Whitman, ingniting a humorous exchange in which the actors call-and-respond, sometimes surprising one another with their poetic replies. A particularly funny section of Leaves of Grass leads to “A Supermarket in California”; and a deeply anti-war passage from Leaves leads to the angry “Hum Bom!” The performance takes place with minimal props, and Troy Martin provides musical accompaniment.

Beau O’Reilly is a founding member of the Curious Theater Branch, co-curator of the Rhinoceros Theater Festival, and a frequent contributor to This American Life. A professor of playwriting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he is the author of over 80 original plays.

John Starrs is a poet, actor, spoken-word performer and teacher. He has appeared in numerous Curious productions, including Still in Play, The Madelyn Trilogy, The Turtle at Play, Hit Me Like a Flower, and Discovery Tales.
