I Am My Own Cast Party

I Am My Own Cast Party

Lucas Brooks

Footlight Theatre, Orlando FL</strong>

First of all, I’d like to thanks the P-House staff for cleaning the Disco Ball. It’s now MUCH more fabulous, as it should be. Mr. Brooks was reasonably fabulous as well; you may have caught some of his Orlando Fringe material over the past years (“Cootie Catcher” and “VGL 5’4” Top” come to mind.) While he’s a good looking man he does feature a diminished stature, yet he can’t get cast as Puck in “Midsummer’s Night Dream.” He’s avoided the Broadway stage, not that he hasn’t been trying. Tonight we hear his life’s tale from theater school to coming out to the Audition Hell every actor goes through. He moves elegantly about the stage; it might be that “motion memory” thing I’ve heard about but either way he’s fun to watch. There were tech problems with misbehaving lights and oscillating amplifiers, but he soldiered on. Highlights include his “Eight Bit Audition” and a fake German accented version of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” He’s also a “boylesque” artist on the side, we see a bit of his “Lucky Charming “routine although nothing particularly naughty appears. With only a single weekend run, I suspect he may bring this show back for the next Fringe Festival; it’s just the sort of performance we all look for in that wild time.
