Vaudevisuals interview with Jennifer Miller

Dick Zigun’s rock-opera ‘Bloody Brains in a Jukebox‘ is being directed by none other than Circus Amok’s own Jennifer Miller. I sat down with her at Coney Island USA and ask about the upcoming show and her directing of it.

Bloody Brains in a JukeBox is a rock opera, with a libretto by Dick D. Zigun, music by Nikos Brisco, and direction by Circus Amok’s Ethyl Eichelberger Award-winning Jennifer Miller. In this sung-through and psychedelic sci-fi satire, characters resembling Sidney Poitier, Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Coogan, and Jayne Mansfield tussle with a talking, flying, brain-eating Wurlitzer Model 1100 jukebox – with results as mind-blowing and out there as anything you’ve ever seen at the sideshow.
