it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!

it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!Odyssey Theatre presents 4 performances of John Fleck’s ‘it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!’ a musical cabaret special event-in-progress

We’re deconstructing again. Odyssey Theatre Ensemble presents an entertaining and provoking musical cabaret-style special event, conceived and performed by legendary performance artist John Fleck (Blacktop Highway, Mad Women, NEA Four). it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE! gets four work-in-progress performances on Sept. 18, Sept. 25, Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 in advance of a full-fledged opening later in the Odyssey season.

Developed with and directed by longtime Fleck collaborator David Schweizer, it’s alive, ITS ALIVE! is an outrageous satire that reflects on our national panic in the face of the pandemic. Joined onstage by a band and two singer/dancers, Fleck uses musical numbers, dance sequences and broad characters to create a hilarious and uniquely ribald theatrical rollercoaster that skewers our fears and assumptions about everything from COVID-19 to our identity as earth dwellers at this precarious moment.

“The piece will give the impression of improvisation, with frequent audience interaction, but the text is carefully scripted,” explains Schweizer. “John writes characters who might seem like clowns, but they possess an undercurrent of real danger. It’s alive, IT’S ALIVE invites audiences to examine their own tension and apprehension around the pandemic, as well as its political effects, and to laugh at those same fears, aiming for a kind of theatrical transcendence.”

Four performances of it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE! take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18 Saturday, Sept. 25 Saturday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Saturday, Oct. 9. All tickets are $25.The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., West Los Angeles, 90025. For reservations and information, call (310) 477-2055 or go to OdysseyTheatre.com.
