Liberated Muse Productions Announces the Spring 2011 Season for the Play Running: AMOK
|The musical stage play Running: AMOK returns to stage for a second season after a successful debut in the 2010 Capital Fringe Fest.|
“After the run in the Fringe festival, I knew that I wanted to give my play another chance to reach a broader audience,” she said. “We received such great feedback but I knew that when I brought the play back, there would be a few changes that I think audience members will really appreciate.”
Featuring returning cast members Quineice and Lyn Artope, who the DCist calls “a pleasant surprise”, new additions to the cast include vocalists Colie Williams, and Deja Belle along with seasoned actress Rayona L. Young. Young, who has won accolades for her past work as an actress and director of productions like The Vagina Monologues and Ain’t Misbehavin’ will also serve as the Assistant Director of the production.
Running: AMOK at the Bonifant Theatre
Running: AMOK will kick off the Spring season with a free preview show in March at the Oxon Hill Public Library in Oxon Hill, MD in celebration of SWAN Day, a commemorative day celebrating women in the arts. The play’s musical score, composed by Gary Young, will then be featured in May in a cabaret setting in Baltimore, MD at Germano’s Traittoria. Patrons will enjoy an intimate performance featuring excerpted dialogue from the play and performances of the play’s stellar soundtrack which the DC Theater Scene called a collection of songs that are “slow-burning little gems.”
The play will then run for three days at the Bonifant Theatre in Silver Spring, MD from May 19-21. The Bonifant Theatre’s resident theatre company, the InnerCircle Repertory Theatre, will co-produce the show.
Running: AMOK is a spirited stage play written by performance artist Khadijah Ali-Coleman, with music composed by Gary Young, about one of the most life-changing experiences a woman may face– sometimes willingly, sometimes while screaming and kicking, and always without a user-friendly manual. Featuring original music and honest dialogue, Running: AMOK leaves audiences laughing, singing-along and riveted by the complex conversation between three 21st century women and the saucy Mama Belle who is not all she seems to be.
