Offending the audience
Germinal Stage Denver: 8/9 – 8/2
By turns annoying, boring, uninteresting, interesting, puzzling and exhilarating, “Offending the Audience” is the perfect choice for Germinal Stage Denver’s swan song. “Conceived and administered” by Ed Baierlein the show features a huge cast of actors who have peopled the shows at GSD for decades. In case you may have forgotten their names each member of the cast has a big white card with his name on it hanging from a string around his neck. The actors move into, around and through the audience reciting lines with very little expression. Many times another actor somewhere else in the space echoes the line. For much of the show the house lights are on and so the patron gets to watch his fellow theatergoers as well.
Among other things this production is a reunion of colleagues and cohorts that allows not only a great number of the actors from the past to come together in celebration but also allows those who have peopled the audience over the years to participate as well.
It's not offensive!
