Another Rave Review for HOTYB at the PIT!

Hold On To Your Butts, the project I co-created and directed with my company Recent Cutbacks has garnered another rave review, this time from New York Theatre Review.

Victoria Teague reviews Recent Cutbacks' HOTYB

Another highlight: “Director Kristin McCarthy Parker has choreographed an hour of pure farce with seamless transitions from scene to scene.”

Kapow-i Gogo Tix On Sale NOW!

I’m co-directing a new show at the PIT, Kapow-i Gogo, that promises to be another epic adventure. Told in 3 parts over 3 weeks, our heroine Kapow-i’s journey is a hybrid of nerd culture taken to the max! You don’t want to miss this. Info below…

Her name is Kapow-i GoGo. And she’s going to save the world. Again. And again. And again. Matthew Cox’s Kapow-i GoGo is an epic, three-part, live-action hybrid of Dragon Ball Z, Cyberpunk Space Operas, most of the Final Fantasies and every other after-school cartoon you watched in the mid-to-late ’90s. It’s a Geek Coast of Utopia. A Nerd Gatz. A Normal Person Season of House on Netflix. With cooler hair. And more robotic appendages and random encounters.

Kapow-i GoGo began as one of the most popular plays at The Flea Theater’s #serials@theflea. For the PIT run, the show has been expanded and re-conceived into three totally new, separate evenings: Kapow-i GoGo Gooooo!, Kapow-i GoGo Z, and Kapow-i Neo Evolution GT-X; spanning three decades and following our plucky blue-haired fighter on her journey to collect all the legendary Hydra Crystals, to compete in the World’s Martial Arts Tournament, to far-flung future dystopias and fights with power-mad cybernetic generals, giant robots, mountain monsters and assorted other final bosses. And, of course, saving the princess.

Kapow-i GoGo Part 1: Kapow-i GoGo Gooo!!! plays February 16th, 17th, 19th and 20th (with Episode 1 at 7pm, Episode 2 at 8pm and Episode 3 at 9pm on a split bill) and in it’s entirety 2/21 at 11pm.

Kapow-i GoGo Part 2: Kapow-i GoGo Z plays February 23rd, 24th and 27th (with Episode 4 at 7pm, Episode 5 at 8pm and Episode 6 at 9pm on a split bill ) and in it’s entirety 2/28 at 11pm.

Kapow-i GoGo Part 3: Kapow-i GoGo Returns Fri 3/6 11pm – 12:30am, 9:30-11pm, Tues 3/10 9:30-11pm, Wed 3/11 9:30-11pm
