If Clue was set in a Brooklyn loft space inhabited by beings caught between the court of Louis XIV and the runways of New York Fashion Week, you might just begin to get a taste of what is to come in Company XIV’s newest theatrical/dance event La Fête. Directed and choreographed by Austin McCormick, La Fête is a deliciously decadent murderous masquerade where the audience becomes the privileged guests at a depraved and debaucherous fête, where intrigue lies around every twist and turn, and no one is who they really seem.
This neo-Baroque entertainment features live music by Beatbox Guitar, opera singer Brett Umlauf, accordionist Raphael Fusco and torch singer Shien Lee. The performers include Marisol Cabrera, Laura Careless, Raphael Fusco, Sean Gannon, Steven Trumon Gray, Lea Helle, Shien Lee, Pete List, Rob Mastriani, Lauren Muraski, Cailan Orn, Jeff Sykes, Jeff Takacs and Austin Tyson.
The design team includes Zane Pihlstrom (Set & Costume Design), Jeanette Yew (Lighting Design) and Corey Tatarczuk (Projection Design).
