Check out what these G.L.O.C.s are up to this week:
Waiting for Obama at the Strawberry One Act Festival Semi-Finals
February 7th, 9pm
Hudson Guild Theatre, 441 W. 26th St
President Barack Obama was inducted into Disney World’s Hall of Presidents On July 4, 2009. This is the story of Presidents Washington, Lincoln, Hayes, Roosevelt (the one that’s a Democrat), Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Reagan as they vie for the coveted spot next to the Hall’s newest occupant in the days before their popular peer’s arrival. Part political satire, part work-place comedy, this one-act play explores the legacy of these vaunted presidents and tests their knowledge of Disney movie lyrics.
Written by Caitlin Tegart, Directed by Neil W. Casey
Starring: Timothy Dunn, Matt Fisher, Michael Hartney, Will Hines, John Murray, Winston Noel and Ben Rameaka

You’ve probably confused one member of Doppelganger for the other…or the other, but they’re all very different. Except they do the same stuff, have the same energy, and perform in the same group. Doppelganger will take a suggestion and create scenes that weave in and out of worlds, connecting them all through an organic free form structure. They will organically make you orgasm (organically).
Starring: Nicole Byer, Sasheer Zamata and Keisha Zollar
