The Edith Bolte Kutz Theater (Blackbox) of the Lackland Center
Professional Equity Theatre Presentation
The physical comedy ensemble Parallel Exit is back by popular demand. The Black Box hit returns with their new comedy, “Room 17B.” Known for works which blend theatre, dance, and music, Parallel Exit celebrates the styles of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton with a dash of Monty Python. 9 to 5 will never be the same! “Room 17B” will run November 8th-11th in the Kutz Black Box Theatre.
Mark Lonergan, the Artistic Director of Parallel Exit, is based out of New York but has brought the collaborative works
of Parallel Exit to theatres all over the world. Lonergan formed Parallel Exit in 1997 to create original and innovative
works of physical theatre. The ensemble for “Room 17B” includes percussionist Mike Dobson, dancer Danny Gardner,
performer and choreographer Brent McBeth, and Joel Jeske who is a physical performer, director, teacher and professional
clown who has appeared in major feature films and on television in Sex in the City, The Late Show with David Letterman,
and Live with Regis and Kelly. Together, these performers bring a unique and memorable piece of theatre to Centenary
Stage’s Black Box Festival. The New York Post described “Room 17B” as “A series of self-contained
routines, each one brief, elegant and perfectly balanced.”
