After over ten years of being known as downtown theatre's most-loved purveyor of live B-Movie mayhem and stage adaptations of cinema's most notorious cult classics, DMTheatrics director Frank Cwiklik is indulging in what may be the most audacious and ambitious numbskull idea he's yet had - a binge-and-purge festival of five, count 'em, five Ed Wood messterpieces adapted for the stage, an all-out assault on the sensitivities and patience on the fans and audiences that have made DMT the biggest little theater company below 14th Street.
