And Toto Too Presents:
The Greater Good
by Rebecca Gorman O’Neill

The Greater Good is a sardonic look at might happen if we forget our past, or lose hope for our future.

Assistant Director Libby Arnold
Starring: Sam Gilstrap, Ben Griffin, Erica Lee Johnson, Madison Kuebler, Sean Verdu

Led by well known Colorado Director/Playwright Edith Weiss, Vox Phamalia is the result of an annual writing-to-performance development workshop, designed for Phamaly Theatre Company members to explore the process of writing an original piece, having it selected and taken to performance. The theatrical devices of improvisation, sketch comedy, dramatic story telling and music are all used in the workshop process. She tells us, “Having so many new faces in Vox really energized the show this year. This all new show goes places Vox Phamalia has not gone before. You can trust Vox for comedic takes on subjects that others consider taboo.” Edith was awarded Best Direction of a Play by The Denver Post & Best of Westword, and named Best New Play by David Marlowe.
Now in its 24th season, Phamaly is an award-winning Colorado based Theatre Company comprised entirely of performers with a wide variety of physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities. Phamaly’s mission is to inspire people to re-envision disability through professional theatre.

Rounding out a year-long exploration of expressionist work, The LIDA Project presents Eugene O’Neil’sThe Hairy Ape the story of a simple laborer trapped in a world controlled by the rich. This classic expressionist work of is re-imagined as a one-man performance with hyper-media in this new production.
