It's November 1st, the Day of the Dead, on the Good Morning America Johnny Johnson, morning news show starring, none other than Johnny Johnson. On today's show Johnny will be interviewing a local medium. During the interview, a few uninvited "guests" from the past begin to appear spontaneously. These "guests" include Plato, Mark Twain, Hamlet, Mary, mother of God, Abraham, Bonnie and Clyde, Adolf Hitler and Margaret Sanger and begin to discuss their views on our current events. Presented in a savagely comic way, the show blurs the line between dream and reality.
The cast includes: Dennis Davies as John E. Johnson, Virginia Armitage as Einstein, Nick Baldock as Hamlet, Beverlix Jean-Baptiste, Stephen Dym as Abraham, Ruth Guimera, Keith Herron as Mark Twain, Homa Hynes as Bonnie, Jaqueline Jacobus, Bob Jester as Plato, Audrey Lavine, Javier Machado as Hitler, Jodi Monaco, Anne Pasquale as Mary, Mike Roche, Wes Seals as Clyde, Ferelith Young as Margaret Sanger

ACCIDENTAL REPERTORY THEATER was founded in 2005 by Artistic Director John Strasberg as a practical expression of the Organic Creative Process, which he discovered. We were incorporated as a New York State not-for-profit corporation in 2006, and are a 501c3 tax exempt and registered New York State charitable organization. Our weekly professional workshop is a key component of our life as a company, providing an opportunity for each participant to work on his or her creative process, but also helping to establish a common vocabulary and way of working. A major achievement of our first years of existence is the "World of Writers" (WOW) program, whose first segment was devoted to the life and works of Tennessee Williams. Featuring participants from our professional workshop, this 45 minute presentation has been presented to junior high school and high school students, and elsewhere in NYC, and was a featured seminar in our inaugural season in the fall of 2008. Since 2008, our play development program has identified promising new works and provided readings by company participants and others, possibly leading to further developmental productions. In the summer of 2009 we offered a five-week program for 7-10 actors, featuring training in audition technique, preparation, organic script analysis, movement, voice, and scene technique. ART's productions are dedicated to our philosophy of doing theater that is entertaining and provocative, with actors whose creative process is deeply personal and truthful, in the tradition of the best American theater and acting.
