the official announcement:

It is with unmitigated joy and excitement that we bring you news of our newest theatrical endeavor “The Debt Rattle.”

"The Debt Rattle" is our 8th original show and finds our Citizens struggling to make sense of the post-crash social order, set in the desperate world of marathon dancing.

We're simply thrilled to announce that this first staging of "The Debt Rattle" shall feature the incredible talents of such dazzling Citizens as Chelsea Bacon, Ian Buchanan, Michael Cavadias, Adam Crystal, Karen Elson, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Rachelle Garniez, Mike Jackson, Greg Jarrett, Zoe Kravitz, Dave Lebleu, Mark McAdam, Amy Miles, Jon Natchez, Nina Persson, Rain Phoenix and Ronin with musical direction by Kimberly Grigsby ("Spring Awakening") and special guest performers Mr. Blue, Justin Bond and Jeff Palmiotti. We are extremely gratified to once again enjoy the talents of set designers Dino Siampos & Sam Wheeler.

full disclosure: the co-founders sarah sophie flicker and jorjee douglass are good friends of mine! {unfortunately jorjee won't be in this show, she's here with us in los angeles...} but the show is utterly amazing...unlike anything i've seen before. dancing, singing, acrobatics and loads of vintage visual inspiration, it's a sight to be seen. want to know more...i've written about them before here. see more amazing photos from past performances here.
