Hey gang! Betsy and I are going to see Arena Stage's production of Elephant Room, a show about hapless, clueless wannabe magicians billed as an "absurdist performance...Filled with off-the-wall magic and sublime comedy." Written by Steve Cuiffo, Trey Lyford and Geoff Sobelle, the show is directed by Paul Lazar.
It's clear from the promo materials that someone in the show has experience as a professional magician, with a certain amount of "inside baseball" humor. I'll let you know how it is.
Elephant Room is a co-production of the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival, Philadelphia, PA and Arena Stage, Washington, DC and runs from Jan. 20 – Feb. 26, 2012. You can buy tickets here.
