Boomslang, GDC’s theater/literary wing, will be holding a developmental, workshop-style reading of two new, 1-act plays, Word Play/Paper Play by Amy Rose Marsh and Speaking in Stomachs by Katharine Henner as part of Arts in Bushwick’s SITEfest 2010.
When: Saturday, March 6th, 1-2:30 p.m.
Where: Third Ward, 195 Morgan Avenue, Bushwick, Studio A
Suggested donation: $5
Paper Play/Word Play imagines a love affair between two recluses who spend their lives obsessing over the written word. In Speaking in Stomachs, Katharine Henner imagines a support group for information addicts.
This reading, which will be followed by a short talk-back with the authors, is designed to hone and tone the presented scripts, which are in gestation. This is the first time getting either of these plays on their feet, and the authors would like to invite you, as audience members, to take notes, talk back and be a part of the process. We are workshopping these plays in anticipation of full-production in the Capitol Fringe Fest in Washington, D.C., and possibly elsewhere, this summer.
Says Julian of our video:
“Admittedly, if you’re in the wrong kind of mood, 4 minutes of pretty hipsters being quirky may seem diabetes-inducing. But there’s obviously also something really, deeply great about this: they’re acting in the sense that they’re emulating the original mashup, and the guy who shot it obviously has a strong eye and some experience with video editing. But this is also basically just a group of friends having an authentic social moment and screwing around together. It should feel familiar, and kind of resonate for anyone who’s had a sing-a-long or dance party with a group of good friends.”
The Cobras want to give a humungous, never-ending CONGRATULATIONS to Megar, whose play was selected as one of eight 10-minute shorts to be presented in association with Left Hip Productions at the Shell Theatre next week. Stop by and give Katie eight 10-minute high fives!!!!

Liz put her Cobra Editing School lessons to good use to make this awesome behind the scenes video! All footage shot, edited and produced by Little Lizzie.
Our musical loft is up for grabs. Get your violin, backup vox, wield a single tom, and get raw for this one.
Another song of your choice is welcome. (We have a crush on 22.)
Traversing Brooklyn, flash performances, camera angles and cookies. All these things plus the cobras made this video possible. We got an e-mail from soemone who knows Willy Smith himself and swore up and down that the man himself saw it and loved it. I’m not convinced but vimeo + youtube views, the video has been seen over 100,000 times. Yahoo!
