NYDT's Auditions Announcement:
Romantic Fools by rich orloff
New York Deaf Theatre is seeking actors for our upcoming Spring production, Romantic Fools, written by Rich Orloff and directed by Joey Caverly.
Romantic Fools consists of 8 two-character comedies examining love, lust, dating, and romance -- from a date with a caveman (Find Me a Primitive Man) to the joys of dull sex (One Man's Secret Desire) to the surprise frustrations of having a perfect mate (The Stepford Guy). With influences of Monty Python, Saturday Night Live, Jules Feiffer, the Marx Brothers, and classic vaudeville comedy, these sketches vary in style but all celebrate the inherent comedy of male-female relationships.
