Breaking Wind Blows Audience Away!
Audio Journal’s Radio-Active Theatre was taken by complete surprise at the audience reaction to their latest presentation, “Phillip Merlot, Breaking Wind.” A crowd of close to 200 patrons and supporters filled the Birches Auditorium at The Briarwood Community in Worcester on Saturday, November 15, 2014. The immediate bursts of laughter caught the cast off guard at the start of the program. “What are they laughing at? This is serious theater, was my first thought,” said star Lola Zinfandel. “Then I was reminded that we were actually performing a comedy.” Lead actor Phillip Merlot complained, “I couldn’t hear myself emote, they were laughing so loud.” New York artist Steven Cosentino said, “It was so…so…so stupid!” which was a great compliment because that is exactly what we were going for.
