Info-Boy!

90 minutes. 3 males, 2 females. Offstage voices: 1 male, 2 females. A middle-aged infomercial executive faces conflicting pressures: the desire to be close to his adult daughter, a drive to make his newest venture succeed, and the passionate attentions of his producer/lover. His latest product is Blues-Blockers. These are ultraviolet powered sunglasses that elevate peoples' moods. Cure or scam? The play lets you decide. Serio-comedy.

Info-Boy! actors did a great job. The rainbow-hued glasses shown are part of the show -- and actors and audience alike wear them and participate. The Hedgerow takes its readings seriously, even in an evening of serious fun! Shows above are (l. to r. top) Zoran Kovcic, who played Phil, the main character; Tom, who played Jerry, a neophyte infomercial-maker; Kasey Yarnall (with darker hair), who acted as Kari, Phil's demanding daughter; and Hattie Wesleyk, who played Stephanie, the sexy co-host of the show and Phil's amour and co-producer. Not shown is James Cries, who did a fine job as Japanese businessman Jerry Tsai. "Look Japansese, " Zoran requested. James complied!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Info-audience gets its world-view shifted! Whoa! These glasses alter reality during the show, physically and philosophically.

THE AUDIENCE at intermission. See yourself? Yes, truly there were fans among the fans. The day was hot... but the audience seemed to enjoy the play and gave me, the playwright, many helpful suggestions. Thank you!
