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?
