Last year ThreeWeeks called 2009 Hong Kong Comedy Festival winner Ashley Strand 'commanding and invigorating' and wrote 'Strand needs to go solo, and fast!' He's done just that with Glorified Disasters. Consumerist excess at a Christmas toilet paper promotion in New York City. The lengths to which a young actor will go to fit into the cut-throat world of Sarasota dinner theatre. A fight between brothers at the after-party for a children's musical in Belgium. Separately, these stories are absurd, hilarious, touching. Together, they constitute a profound meditation on the sacrifices and sources of life in the theatre.
This is a 2012 show that has now finished.
