The three-hour clubkid musical starring Michał Axel Piotrowski as ME and David Arnesen as Michael Alig, premieres tonight at the Dramalabbet theater in Stockholm. OMG, THERE’S STILL TIME TO GET THERE AND SEE IT, HURRY! Click here for more information! And tomorrow, I’ll try to post the reviews! YAY! A masterpiece in the making at the Dramalabbet! (Dramalabbet. Dramalabbet. Dramalabbet. I love saying that.)
If you happen to find yourself in Stockholm on September 27th, you might want to check out Dö Klubbdöden, the Swedish Party Monster-esque musical at the Dramalabbet theatre, written by Isabel Cruz Liljegren and starring Michal Axel Piotrowski as ME! Oh, and David Amesen as someone named Michael SomethingOrOther. Alek? Ulig? I couldn’t quite make it out. Swedish is such a difficult language. A rough translation of the press release says: “Dö Klubbdöden is based on real events surrounding James St. James and Michael Alig’s life and the Clubkids movement in New York during ’80s and ’90s. In this clubmusical, with original music by Lissi Dancefloor Disaster, we follow Clubkids longing for togetherness and creating a life beyond the everyday boredom, work principles, and heterosexual norms. The director is Gustav Englund, who lately directed a play called Our Golden Girl at Dramalabbet.” Michal Axel Piotrowski has been emailing me updates about the show’s progress and assures me opening night is going to be BANANAS. I’m thinking of starting a Kickstarter to raise money for my plane ticket. What do you think? Want to go?
The video that led to Party Monster. Mac looked SO FAB being all fucked up here, there was never any doubt that he was our Michael Alig. (via Poison Paradise)
Come see ME at the Rio Theater tomorrow night! There’s a screening of Party Monster with a Q & A beforehand and a costume contest afterward! Shout out your favorite lines with the movie! Get up and reenact scenes under the movie screen! Then we’re all going to the after-party at a top-secret location (which just means I can’t remember right now). OMG YAY!
If you missed the live feed of Randy and Fenton on Bring Your Own Doc yesterday, you can watch the whole thing here and now! They sit down with Ondi Timoner and talk about Party Monster, Becoming Chaz, In Vogue: The Editors Eye, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and last but not least, they discuss The World According To Wonder!
