“A very funny and innovative play”
Mario Fratti, Tony Award winner, ‘Nine’

Written by Simcha Borenstein

Directed by Noemi de la Puente

With
Carlo Fiorletta
and
Janet S. Kim

In a fight between Art and reality, the true and the fake, guess what wins? In Bogosity, bad things happen to good plans and nobody escapes.

In this fast-paced, intense play. Kaplan, a dedicated dance instructor and his idealistic assistant Melissa, are preparing to cast their segment of the school pageant, and next year’s funding depends on its success. Kaplan’s work is daringly experimental, but has little support from the school Board. He can cast a solo dancer whose style is accessible and pleasing, or risk going with someone who truly represents the new work. Kaplan’s ideals, and job, are on the line.

Theater credits include Suzan-Lori Parks' Electrocutioner's Daughter and Mario Fratti's Iraq Blindness. Dance: Abby Bender and Carolina Fonseca. President of GIAA.
