A porn opera. It had to happen.

Awww Yeeeeah!  Just when the career needed a little spice, the perfect role comes along.

This weekend I will be among the brave and sinfully talented souls putting on the first act of the work in progress, The Enchanted Organ.

I play the aging German porn star, Helmut Langeschlange.  I know.  Total type casting!  Think Dirk Diggler in Boogie nights at the end of his run when the new young stud of the day has come along to replace him.  Das geht nicht!!!!

“The Enchanted Organ” is a burlesque opera that celebrates sexuality and satirizes the porn industry, while parodying four hundred years of the operatic tradition. Composer/librettist team Gordon Beeferman and Charlotte Jackson, with renowned director Beth Greenberg, bring their trademark wit and polymorphous perversity to this journey through “the Magical Kingdom of Porn” –an underground kingdom where past and present, straight and queer, and living and dead converge. Drawing on influences as diverse as classic 70s porno soundtracks, baroque oratorio, Ancient Greek hymns, and the Nutcracker ballet, this work-in-progress is as close as you’ll get (or want to get!) to “aural sex.”

Come one, come all!  (Do I dare?  I can’t resist!  Okay…)   Everybody’s cumming!!!

Dixon Place, NYC.  June 22 and 23.

(My mother is so proud of her opera singer son.)
