Most recent shows reviewed....

Patriot Act

Writer/Performer:Mike Schlitt

...moments of insightful and comedic brilliance about founding documents, founding fathers and some of the conceptual ridiculousness of politics today without even broaching on the 2016 Presidential election.

Homos Sapiens Interruptus

Writer: Carlos Dengler  

Carlos Dengler (former guitarist for Interpol) takes us on a roundabout tour of who he is while peppering the piece with examples of who he was using musical, theatrical, paleontological and philosophical underpinnings to show us he is different and more than what he was.

Murder at the Food Coop

Writer: Gersh Kuntzman and Marc Dinkin
Director: Eric Oleson

...madcap dash through one man's view of a surreal environment bottled up in a too small store ramps up the pressure leading to an enjoyable and somewhat unsettling night of absurdist merriment.

PRYOR TRUTH

By Khalil Muhammad

... Khalil Muhammad is exciting as Richard Pryor in Pryor Truth. 
The mannerisms, the voice, the fine tuned and seething anger at an unfair society all shine through in his performance.

ZUCCOTTI PARK, A musical about the human side of economics

Writer: Catherine Hurd, Composer: Vatrena King
Director: Luis Salgado
Choreographer: Luis Salgado

   But those hit home if you have ever railed against a system that doesn't follow its own rules whether it is a judge dodging service of Habeus Corpus motions (looking at you Judge Andrew Peck), a mayor evicting you on false pretenses using willfully ignorant enforcement agents or whether it is the selling of public assets to connected entities for virtually nothing or the blank stares ...
 

Cabtivist

Writer: John McDonagh, Music by Rory Kirwin
Director: Kira Simring 

John McDonagh  takes a step up to become a cab driver and uses his relentless sense of cognitive dissonance to attack societal foibles harder than almost any performer I have seen in the last 20 years.
 

Walken on Sunshine

Writer: Dave Droxler, Music by James Rushin
Director: Marcus Stevens

...Walken on Sunshine never looks back as it nails a savage look at the creative arts, specifically movie making

At the Crossroads: Music for Faust

Writer: Ben Singer

The old room, high ceiling, wood beams, subterranean sky light and simple staging yanked me in and, once I let myself slow down from the pace of the life outside and was one with the music and the film, carried me along with a story we all know, selling out your long term soul for short term success/power.
 --p.s. some of the special effects are impressive even today.

Whales and Souls

Actor: Chris Roe, Writer: Andrew Kramer, Director: Matt Renskers

Armed with a simple set Roe is a tour de force being all seven characters in Whalesfrom nuanced subtle roles that draw you in to the seething anger in parts that exhibit a shocking aggression.

Einstein!

By Jack Fry

... enjoy an imaginary romp as Jack Fry as Einstein lays down some truth all about what Einstein would say about today and about the world's view of Einstein himself.

Brief History and Mission : OOBLE.ORG : an outgrowth of a Brooklyn theater, the Brooklyn Lyceum - brooklynlyceum.com.

The Brooklyn Lyceum is a theater under siege by judges who lie and cheat to achieve goals in violation of law, rule, statute, precedent, due process and their oaths of office. For a highlight of a specific judge  see - coganlaw.org.  When the dust settles the Brooklyn Lyceum will again anchor the corner of 4th Avenue and President Street.  Until that time we are seeking view works to see if they might be candidates for inclusion in a future Brooklyn Lyceum calendar.

That and we are creating reviewing process whereby we can see and review work and, if the review is positive, shout it out to the Lyceum audience as a proxy for the Brooklyn Lyceum at least until such time as the Brooklyn Lyceum rises again from the legal ashes.
