Additional Notes:
CASEY----30 YEARS LATER! written by and starring Beverly Bonner, is based upon her “Casey” character in Frank Henenlotter’s cult horror film classic, “Basket Case.” Released in 1982, this horror film tells the story of a young man who carries his deformed conjoined twin brother in a large basket while seeking vengeance on the doctors who separated them against their will. Written and directed by Frank Henenlotter, “Basket Case” became a cult hit and spawned two sequels. The live comedy play catches up with Bonner’s Casey character from the film series. Casey is running a bar in the East Village featuring Sexy Senior Hookers who, we find, are very feisty and forward thinking and definitely NOT retired. Casey has them “working”. Casey cherishes her spooky memories of Basket Case and continues to live in that world but is forced to deal with reality when dealing with the family of weidos surrounding her, tortured daily by her Reality Show obsessed dumb waitress “Kitty”, dogged by the NYPD who have reports of not only actions unbecoming of mature females but bodies turning up after last seen in Casey’s establishment. There is infighting and generally disrespect by the Senior Sexy Ladies of the Evening, not to mention not enough money coming to keep the Landlord at Bay. There is her “friend” Hands in the Basket with bad eating habit, who may or may not be a serial murderer, and oh yes, there is her visiting innocent religious fanatic niece, Judy. Bobby DeLuca, a rabid fan of Casey, is a NYU reporter from his college newspaper and website, The NYU Notorious New who obsessed with all things “Casey and Basket Case.” It is through this Reporter that we learn what Casey has been up to these last 30 these years. The show is hilarious and the chemistry and comic timing between Ms. Bonner and the rest of the cast makes for a laughing good time. Max Cheney, award winning blogger (The Drunken Severed Head), reviewed the 2011 world premiere of the show at the H
