There’s yet another upstart theater company in town, and this one has a pedigreed artistic director. The brand new Re-Theatre Instrument’s Jason Zimbler has an “entertainment career spanning 3 decades,” including credits on the the Broadway musical Shenandoah and directing work with NYC’s Impetuous Theater Group.
Oh, and also?
Zimbler is best known for his role as Ferguson Darling, the world’s brattiest little brother on Clarissa Explains It All
Which brings us to this conceptually brilliant video from Brooklyn band the XYZ Affair. Grown-up Fergie, Bobby Budnick from Salute Your Shorts, and Big Pete (who has not aged well) take their revenge on Marc Summers, host of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare, who hates fun. I would suggest watching with the sound off because the song itself is very not good.
Look for Re-Theatre’s contemporary take on Faust early next year.
