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.

THE SISTER ROSETTAS

What a fun show!

The notes from the program are:

“A revival of the rock/pop-punk/cabaret music of world touring, from Tokyo  to Georgia, MING DYNASTY last seen on City Stages in 2009 alongside Diana Ross, Ben Harper, and Al Green. Miranda and Oh call this new collaboration The Sister Rosettas featuring Diana Oh on lead vocals.”

4 top notch musicians on stage at the intimate and charming IRT Theatre (154 Christopher St,) rocking the house with songs from the group Ming Dynasty and new originals.

The new collaboration is THE SISTER ROSETTAS featuring the vocals of Diana Oh, Lead guiter/vocals of Eric Miranda with Vocals/Percussion of Matt Harrington, Vocals, Bass by Philippe Arman and Vocals/Guitar by Kole Smith.

Diana tells the story of her chance meeting with Eric in the streets of NYC. Then 4 days later they revive the band. This was a great evening of original music by The Sister Rosettas and songs from the previously recorded Ming Dynasty.

Here are some photographs from the show…
