The Carlalogues

Whatever Carla wants, Carla gets. And, little man, Carla wants… an audience! Now! Sick of the pandemic and desperate to be back in the spotlight, she breaks into the Flamingo Club with the aid of her manservant Jeffrey. There, before a quite-literally captive audience (thank you, duct tape and blindfolds!) she puts on an evening of guerilla storytelling. As the evening – and her list of felonies and misdemeanors – unfolds, Carla regales her stunned fans (thank you, tasers!) with stories of support groups for wayward Karens, concert tours with the Manson Family, USO shows for drone pilots on Zoom, and her bitter rivalry with Cher.

Starring Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi, The Carlalogues is a brand new audio play by Anthony Hudson. This project was launched during the 2020 Mercury Company .

Coming to IPhones and 8 Track Tape Players near you in Fall 2020!

 

TABLE|ROOM|STAGE (T|R|S) was established in 2015 and is Artists Rep’s new play program whose mission is to develop and produce new work that vividly expresses Artists Rep’s aesthetic values.
