Saint Hollywood  | Open: 01/28/10 Close: 03/20/10
In SAINT HOLLYWOOD, comedian Willard Morgan's wild ride chasing Hollywood stardom ends up being a descent into the belly of the show business beast.  Using digital video projections on three sides of the gallery walls and a live 5 piece rock bank Morgan introduces us to his "Saints," an unusual lineup of unlikely advisors:  Vuzar, the Mexican transvestite paraplegic who conducts a lucrative phone sex business from her pink People Mover; Champ, a/k/a Lord Anthony, the ex-prizefighter knighted by the King of Greece for building the royal stretch limo; Dennis Woodruff, the actor who has made a high-profile career out of never being cast in anything; and many others.  These real-life Saints, whose unique journeys have lifted them into the realm of the sublime, offer their encouragement and the occasional well-placed kick! to Morgan on his odyssey to the perfect gig.

The band includes Musical Director and guitarist MACK PRICE, TOM ROSLAK on drums, YUVAL SEMO on piano/synth/bass and backup vocals by TAYLOR GREENWOOD, SAHIRAH JOHNSON and BRIANA LAYON.
The design team includes sets by DARLENE KEN, lighting by SCOTT NEEDHAM, video design by JESSIE STEAD & STEFANIE KOSEFF, sound design by CHRISTOPHER NORTH, installation by DARLENE KEN & JORGE EMMANUEL, animation by BECK UNDERWOOD & CELINE GUILLUAME and film sequence by ABHAY SOFSKY.  DEBRA STUNICH is the Production Stage Manager.
