Flying V Presents Heroes and Monsters This Month

Jun 11, 2015
Flying V Fights: Heroes and Monsters

What makes a hero a hero and a monster a monster? Can one be both? Is it merely perception and point of view? Working off the success of last year's, Flying V Fights: Love is a Battlefield, which was described as "sexy, visceral, and physical", Flying V is concocting another, all original, ensemble based, devised theatrical mix-tape of staged violence and sonic power. From the colorful, skintight super heroes of the sky, to the monsters under the bed; from real life saviors of the day, to the abusive parent at home and terror around the corner, Flying V Fights: Heroes & Monsters dives head first into those we admire and fear -- and why.

Conceived and directed by Jonathan Ezra Rubin* and Jason Schlafstein*, the production will star Tori Bertocci, Robert Bowen Smith, Jon Jon Johnson, Lee Liebeskind, Tim Torre, Ryan Tumulty, Madeline Whiting and Emily Whitworth. On the production team are Andrew Berry*, Jonathan Ezra Rubin*, Sasha Goldstein, Brittany Graham*, Neil McFadden*, Andrea "Dre" Moore*, Dan Mori*, Kristen Pilgrim, Megan Reichelt*, Jason Schlafstein*, Tia Shearer Bassett*, Kristin A. Thompson* and Heather Whitpan*. Flying V is dedicated to inspiring adventure and is the proud recipient of the 2015 John Aniello Award for Outstanding, Emerging Theatre Company.
