Emerald Condor Productions presents:

DICK PIX MONTANA

A modern-day Romeo (Richard Montana) and Juliet are banished from seeing each other after meeting at a video shoot for the "Keep Ya Junk Clean" safe-sex awareness campaign. They secretly communicate via text and Snapchat, until an errant sext lands Richard in jail for distributing child pornography, much to the delight of Julia's dad. Will Richard face the sex offender registry, or find true love? Originally produced by Broom Street Theater, Dick Pix Montana is an original play from the writer of Spread the Nudes and Lobotomy: the Musical! that can only be adequately described as a Shakespearean cyber-thriller courtroom drama romantic tragi-comedy...

$17  ROW D through H  (no added fees or tax)
A quick-moving, biting, fun and infuriating tale of four souls navigating the dating scene of Chicago in the 70's. 

One of Mamet's earliest plays, Sexual Perversity in Chicago follows four acquaintances, two of whom are lovers, as they dissect the relationships between men and women. Danny and Deb are naive and  hopeful about love while Bernie and Joan are and much more cynical. As Danny and Deb fall in and out of love, Bernie and Joan provide increasingly bitter commentary -- Bernie about his sexual conquests of women, and Joan about her absolute distrust of men.

CHRIS GOODE as Danny Shapiro

Chris feels right at home back at the Alchemist, performing in his first show here since 2013's King Lear and Closing Night. Recent Milwaukee credits include Matt in All The Great Books (abridged) at In Tandem Theatre, Yvan in 'Art' with Milwaukee Entertainment Group, and Dorante in The Metromaniacs at Windfall Theatre.  Look for Chris to be back at the Alchemist soon for Columbo: Prescription Murder.  Big thanks to Aaron and Erica for this opportunity. Love to Therese. Thanks for coming and enjoy the show!

  

  

  

DAVID SAPIRO as Bernard Litko

David is thrilled to be back on the Alchemist stage, having last appeared here in October as Donald in PEPPER'S GHOST. He has most recently been seen as Roland in All In Production's presentation of CONSTELLATIONS; other credits include Porter Milgrim in DEATHTRAP at Milwaukee Chamber Theatre; Cliff in Renaissance Theaterworks' production of LUNA GALE; and John in David Mamet's A LIFE IN THE THEATRE at the Alchemist Theatre. He will next appear as Oswald in Optimist Theatre's production of KING LEAR. David is indebted to his family for their love and support, and to God for His grace and mercy.

BECKY COFTA as Deborah Soloman

Becky is ecstatic to be back at The Alchemist after appearing in and choreographing Rocky Horror in 2015. Some of her favorite credits since then include Venus In Fur, A Chorus Line, The Wild Party, a woman’s Place and Romeo and Juliet. Major thanks to Erica and Aaron for their trust and faith, along with her friends and family who continue to be the best support system a gal could ever want.

BRITTANY BOECHE as Joan Webber

Brittany  loves you. She received a BA in Theater from UW Parkside in 2014, and isn’t as poor as she thought she’d be. Sometimes she performs, other times she stage manages or administrates. She has worked with the Alchemist in the past, along with the Milwaukee Youth Theater, Bard and Bourbon, Kohl’s Wild Theater, and recently finished Stage Managing/Assistant Directing “Constellations” with All In Productions. Currently, Brittany is the Administrator for First Stage’s Education Department. She’ll also babysit your dog for cheap.

SYDONIA LUCCHESI  -  stage manager / chief of staff

Sydonia  is thrilled to be stage managing at the Alchemist once again, after most recently being here for the revival of the Halloween show, "Pepper's Ghost"!  She has also recently worked with Cooperative Performance ("Ellis"), Skylight Music Theatre ("Annie"), and traveled the State Parks of Wisconsin this past summer with the Summit Players, stage managing (and playing a door in) their fast paced, cut-down "Comedy of Errors".


ERICA CASE - director / producer

Erica is a Human Resource Director by day and Alchemist Theatre Co-Owner and Girl in Black by night. She is thrilled to be working with this amazing cast and crew and is grateful to them for trusting her in this journey. She would like to thank Tove for everything including the brick and mortar, Aaron for being her partner in crime and life’s craziness and Griffon & Drake for being more than she ever could have imagined.

No extra fees or sales tax added to ticket price.

Free street parking.

Corsets, cannibals, and cash collide in this darkly comic
ragtime-infused musical.
