“Andy: The Red-Nosed Warhola” Alive in La-La Land

Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017 imageBy Ernest Kearney — In Andy: The Red-Nosed Warhola, director/adapter Ezra Buzzington has crafted a swift, stylish and oh so entertaining rendering of the iconic personsa of Andy Warhol.  Carved entirely from Warhol’s own words, Buzzington and his ensemble provide the audience with a living slide show experience that delves into Warhol’s concept of beauty, while exploring a formative period in American cultural development.

Performed before the store window of the LA-LA Land Gallery, Buzzington has placed the audience within their own fifteen minutes of guaranteed fame, as passerbys gaze through the glass to watch the audience watch the performance.

Platinum MedalUsing a gifted trio of actors, Kara Emry as Warhol and Krista Conti and Will McMichael as simply “Beauty #1” and “Beauty #2,” Buzzington, with an elegant breviety, subjects the audience to an experiece that concludes in being part Rorschach Test and part Touchstone; allowing them to question what veiws they hold on “beauty” or to discover they’re just citizens in Warholand.

Fun, challenging and superbly staged – A PLATINUM MEDAL.

His first play, "Among the Vipers" was a semi-finalist in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition and was featured in the Carnegie-Mellon Showcase of New Plays. It was produced at the NPT Theater in Ashland, Oregon and Los Angeles’ celebrated Odyssey Ensemble Theatre. His following play, “The Little Boy Who Loved Monsters” was produced at The Hollywood Actors Theater, where he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times for his “…inordinately creative writing.” The play went on to numerous other productions including Berlin’s The Black Theatre under the direction of Rainer Fassbinder who wrote in his program notes of Kearney, “He is a skilled playwright, but more importantly he is a dangerous one.” Ernest Kearney has worked as literary manager or as dramaturge for among others The Hudson Theater Guild, Nova Diem and the Odyssey Ensemble Theatre, where he still serves on the play selection committee. He has been the recipient of two Dramalogue Awards and a finalist or semi-finalist, three times, in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition. His work has been performed by Michael Dunn, Sandra Tsing Loh, Jack Colvin and Billy Bob Thornton, and to date, either as playwright or director, he has upwards of a hundred and thirty productions under his belt, including a few at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as puppeteer.
