SEASON 2002 - 2003

stained glass ugly: midtown international theatre festival
During the Summer of 2003, the Vampire Cowboys brought their brand of entertainment to The Midtown International Theatre Festival. Premiering SGU simultaneously with the West Coast Vampire Cowboys’ production of the same show, the festival and Los Angeles runs received many positive reviews and significant box office returns.

From the playwright the Chicago Reader called “A reminder of what’s best about Theatre” comes a touching new play about perspectives, relationships, and being really really atrociously ugly. Finally, an answer to the age old question, “Could she still love me if I accidentally blew off the bottom half of my face?” A play that is aesthetically tragic, yet emotionally kinda funny.

“This is a new young company to keep an eye on!”
-- T.H. McCulloh, BACKSTAGE

“The writing is consistently clever, graceful, and provocative.”
-- Neal Weaver, LA WEEKLY

“Staged with intelligence and ingenius economy.”
-- Martin Denton, NYTHEATRE.COM
