Laura Zam seems to specialize in one-person shows with two-word titles about three subjects. Last year’s Fringe offering, Stupid Frailty, dealt with Internet dating, death, and genocide. This year, Laura returns with another one-woman show, Collaterally Damaged, about art, sex, and genocide. The shows are comedies. Kinda.
Shirley Serotsky is the play’s director, and she’s not only pushing Damaged to the stage, but also shepherding two “mini-musicals” for Bouncing Ball Theatrical Productions, Cautionary Tales for Adults and The Many Adventures of Trixie Tickles. Busy, busy, busy.
We caught up with Laura and Shirley one hot afternoon in the relative shelter of the courtyard at Laura’s apartment to discuss life and theater and Fringe Freaks.
Collaterally Damaged is at the Colosseum at the Warehouse Theater, 1021 7th Street NW, at midnight, Friday, July 20; 6:30 p.m. Saturday, July 21, and 5:30 p.m. Sunday, July 29.
