The Matrix Entirely From Memory
Add to Calendar
Performers will attempt to perfectly recreate the Christ allegory that is "The Matrix" as best they can without the aid of scripts, rehearsals, or sobriety. All they'll have is their memory and a recent viewing of the film. How certain are we that they'll succeed? So certain that we're making it harder for them!
To add to the challenge, there are a few rules:
-Performers won't know what role they are cast in until the show starts.
-Performers will be assigned a "Zoom rule' along with their role (e.g. "You are only allowed to whisper", "You must incorporate lines written by the audience", "You are only allowed to speak in quotes from 'Three Men and A Baby.'" etc.)
-One person will be given the power to cue deleted scenes. Once cued, the actors must create a deleted scene that has no business being in "The Matrix" but makes perfect sense given where they are in the story.
Love the movie? We got you covered. Never seen it? We got you covered. You think you saw it once and you kind of remember it? You're probably in the show.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Integrate NYC.
