Hoi Polloi: John Cassavetes’ “Shadows”
The Collapsable Hole
The OBIE-winning theater company Hoi Polloi (“Three Pianos”) presents the first-ever staged version of Shadows, the collaboratively-created John Cassavetes film considered a watershed in the birth of American independent cinema. Originally released in 1959, the film depicts lean and hungry artists during the Beat Generation years in New York City, offering an unsparing view of racial and sexual conflict at the height of the Eisenhower era. For this theatrical version, director Alec Duffy (“Three Pianos,” “Murder in the Cathedral”) turns The Collapsable Hole into a raucous apartment party, with the action taking place in and around the audience. The cast includes Mikeah Ernest Jennings, Rick Burkhardt, Julian Rozzell Jr., Paola Di Tolla, Dustin Fontaine, Duane Boutte, Jason Craig and Jessica Jelliffe with music by Burkhardt, Ezra Gale and Steven Leffue. Set design by Andreea Mincic, lighting by Stephen Arnold and costumes by Becky Lasky.
