What the heck happened to Diz?

Diz and Izzy Aster, Vaudeville’s Late Bloomers.

A mysterious mishap in Poughkeepsie prevented the beautiful and talented Diz Aster from joining her husband Izzy in his performance at the 2011 Seersucker Social. Izzy, however, managed to perform despite is own on stage blunders. If anyone has a video of his performance, please get in touch with me. I would love to see it. The featured photos of Izzy (Mark Jaster) at the Seersucker Social were taken by Karon Flage.

You can see husband and wife duo Mark Jaster and Sabrina Mandell, of Happenstance Theater, perform at the upcoming Capital Fringe Festival in July. See the flyer below for information.

Fringe Festival favorites Happenstance Theater (Best Comedy 2007 and 2009 CapFringe festivals, who brought you the sell out hit Handbook For Hosts for last years Fringe) are finally remounting MANIFESTO! After huge success at the 2008 Capital Fringe and the NY Clown Theatre Festival, it is back by popular DaDA-demand!

The setting is the surrealist Cabaret ReVoltaire; a bizarre establishment run by clowns. It is wartime. The guests are visionaries. Art becomes life. Beware of Forgeries! Text is from ACTUAL Manifestos. See the handsome Futurist, the Capitalist and Communist tango, and beauty that arises from the absurd.

MANIFESTO! excites everything!

The DC City Paper said “These merry pranksters get it!…glorious nuggets of nonsense…a delightful romp through the surreal…an extra-sensory extravaganza…it is belly-laugh humor.”

The Washington Post called it “…an ingeniously oddball deconstruction…brash…seductive…Futurism and dadaism pulsed with revolutionary zeal.”

DC Theatre Scene Review by Carrie Klewin:
“If you are looking for an hour of whimsical delight, this café, created by surrealists and run by clowns, is the place to be. Don’t know anything about Dada, Futurism or Surrealism? It doesn’t matter. If you’ve ever had the urge to stand on your head to see the world from a new perspective, you will enjoy this merry dazzle.”
