Debauchery in Brooklyn: Caligula Maximus at the House of Yes Apr 6-17


From a media release:

The Saint At Large, gaydom’s longest running underground party and producer of the notorious BLACK PARTY, joins forces with Lady Circus, the sexually charged acrobatic troupe, to present what is sure to be the dirtiest show in town.

THE SAINT AT LARGE® and LADY CIRCUS present CALIGULA MAXIMUS a new musical disco circus featuring Kayvon Zand
April 6-17, 2011
starring Jamin Ruhren (aka ACID BETTY)
with Stormy Leather, Brittany Campbell and the Lady Circus aerialists


New York City – Jamin Ruhren aka ACID BETTY and Kayvon Zand, two of NYC’s biggest underground stars, lead the cast of Alfred Preisser and Randy Weiner’s CALIGULA MAXIMUS, a new musical disco circus, at House of Yes, April 6-17, 2011.

Helmed by Jen Bender, CALIGULA MAXIMUS features book & lyrics by Alfred Preisser and Randy Weiner (DONKEY SHOW), and musical arrangements by Brent Lord.

CALIGULA MAXIMUS stars Jamin Ruhren (ACID BETTY) and Kayvon Zand, and features Luqman Brown, Charles Baskerville, Brittany Alexandra Campbell, Matt Dallow, Raelyn Hennessee, Stormy Leather, Isaac Scranton, Xavier Smith and Mia Van De Water.

Aptly described by the Village Voice as “a dirty-minded extravaganza,” CALIGULA MAXIMUS combines elements of a musical with songs inspired by a pop icon, a high-wire circus and a nightclub installation.

Set on the last night of the notorious emperor’s life, CALIGULA MAXIMUS is a high-jinks of nudity, frivolity and 70′s-inspired decadence. The debaucherous Emperor of Rome takes on a beautific Jesus Christ in an X-rated wrestling match for the hearts and hard-ons of ancient Rome.

Originally staged to critical acclaim at La MaMa, the sold-out play with music has been overhauled as an all-singing, all-dancing spectacle in which audiences are encouraged to take off their togas for a dip in the Cosmic Pool.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
