What is that called when a bunch of seriously good things collide? The opposite of a perfect storm? Maybe we should be calling it a perfect artistic storm for Lawrenceville artists Gab Cody and Sam Turich. The duo have been receiving major accolades lately for their work on Fat Beckett, which just had its world premiere at Quantum Theatre. Add to that their Lawrenceville hit Mombies is screening at the Sprout Fund’s Tenacity tomorrow night. And the Kickstarter launch of their new project – Progression – a narrative film based on the Lawrenceville progressive dinner.
Fat Beckett: (Pittsburgh now– Luxembourg soon.) By Gab Cody in collaboration with Rita Reis. Directed by Sam Turich. The show runs through December 18. It’s a beautiful hilarious piece. Reviews: Pittsburgh Tatler, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh Post Gazette The show is sold out for several nights, but tonight is open and there are still tickets available for closing weekend! Buy tickets here. Student and artist rate available at the door: Buy Fat Beckett Tickets
Progression: Progression is a feature-length narrative film project, set in Lawrenceville, shot in Lawrenceville and about a real-life Lawrenceville institution: the 27-year-old progressive dinner, which began with about 15 friends and has become a community event with more than 150 participants. Written and to-be-directed by Gab Cody and Sam Turich. We need your help! Any amount helps! Visit here to watch a teaser trailer and contribute: Visit Progression on Kickstarter
