Bruce Pachtman, Solo Artist

WORDS FIRST: a monthly solo performance showcase
June 2, 2010
Wednesday 7:30 pm

$15-$20 ($10-$15 Members)

With performances by:

BRUCE PACHTMAN ~ “Solo Show #2”
Represented by the most prestigious talent agency in America, an actor flies to LA and succeeds beyond his wildest imagination. But not in this play. Want to learn what not to do with a once in a lifetime opportunity?

MICHAEL KATZ ~ “The Perfect Teacher”
What pulls us up? What keeps us going?

An intensely personal and unexpectedly hilarious tale of a nurse gone wild trying to prevent cancer. Her amulet? Yoga & Pork Chops!

COLIN MAHAN ~ “Colin Mahan Does Things!”
The premier name in (and sole practitioner of) the avante-garde absurditiste de l’art phorme known as Performance Comedy returns with the doing of several things. Once you see Mr. Mahan vocalize, emphasize and ambulate whilst onstage, you’ll elatedly turn to the nearest human and urgently exclaim: “Colin Mahan is a thing-doer!”
