BIELZY AND GOTTFRIED

A modern morality musical
Two vaudevillian theatre impresarios, Lucius Bielzy and Joshua Gottfried, old friends caught in an eternal love/hate relationship, rendezvous in a theatre to present a night of 5 short morality plays. They each hope to win the audience over to their opposite points of view concerning good vs. evil, etc.  Imagine a confused Adam and Pandora, a Joseph McCarthy reincarnation hoping to cast the first stone, a middle-aged woman in spiritual meltdown bordering on the obscene, a modern-day Job caught in the battle over free will, and Ed, a dead man trapped in limbo, unable to move on to his future because he cannot face his past. In this unusual, light-hearted look at man’s relationship to his cosmos, you will be laughing to tears one moment, and simply in tears the next.  ​
