Best Thought Experiments

Curtis Luciani and Kaci Beeler

Sometimes they're staging wacky deconstructions of spiritual enlightenment and guru-merchandising as characters Dr. Louis-Apollo Childress and his main acolyte Joey in the fully improvised The Reason. Other times they're exploring roles of creativity and self-actualization under extremely rigorous circumstances in their brilliantly performed Subject to Control, a scripted show made delicious with flavors of Samuel Beckett, Jerry Seinfeld, and B. F. Skinner. Always, Luciani and Beeler of American Berserk Theatre illuminate just how intelligent comedy can get and how slapstick-funny postmodern knowledge can be.
