The Bloody Apocalypse

In 2011, I played the Third Angel and provided the music in a chaotic passion play presented by Mary Lew’s and Ian Downey’s The Bloody Noes. Commissioned by Rochester’s MUCC theater as part of a night of End-of-the-World short plays for the 12-21-2012 doomsday prophecies, The Apocalypse production had twenty minutes to present a literal interpretation of Book of Revelations with twenty actors, costumes, two weeks from concept to performance, and an operating budget of $20.

It played to a full house and was so well-received, a year later, the production was expanded to forty minutes and included a live band, and again, burned the place down.
