Marat Sade

This is off-topic for drug policy reform, but I thought I’d let you know more about my current extra-curricular project.
I am musical director and performing in a production of “The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade” (also known by the shorter title: “Marat/Sade”). Performances are at the Illinois State University Center for the Performing Arts Theatre in Normal, Illinois, November 4-12. It’s a bizarre, wonderful and disturbing play about inmates in an insane asylum in the early 1800s putting on a political musical written and directed by the Marquis de Sade (also an inmate), with political relevance today.
So I am playing the harmonium (organ) as a mental patient (I’m chained to it during the show). The show is full of sex, violence, philosophy, and politics. It’s great fun.
If you’re in the area, check it out. The first one to email me with a request for tickets will get two free tickets.
