The Imperialists at the Club Cave Canem by Charles Mee

Evidence Room

“It’s not clear what the title means. Nor, ultimately, does it matter, since Charles L. Mee’s kaleidoscopic event is essentially one lavish performance-art party, complete with tight production numbers, gorgeously voiced singer-actors, wry comic turns, and fabulously imaginative costumes. The show represents an amalgam of several of L.A.’s most innovative theatrical talents: Bart De Lorenzo’s shrewd, visually insightful direction is set off by Ken Roht’s compelling musical direction and choreography, and by Robert A. Prior’s amazing costumes.” – Paul Birchall, LA Weekly

Los Angeles premiere at the Evidence Room, September 2001
