Jarecki TarzanWhat were you doing last night?  Sitting on your couch watching Netflix?  Wasting time surfing the internet?  Exciting stuff.  You could have seen 8 fantastic new plays that didn’t exist 24 hours before.  Bummer.

More pictures from Combat 11.  That’s me in a very sweet piece written by Drew Brhel.  Drew’s variables were Reincarnation in A Prairie Dog Colony.  I spent a year in Colorodo surrounded by the pests which didn’t help me act the part at all.

Doug Jarecki has never looked lovlier than here as Tarzan.  I believe this was the first of many times that Doug performed topless.  No one asks him to take off his shirt, he just takes it upon himself.  And that’s Jeana Stillman as his trainer in a play about Tarzan in Amish Country.  She was soon to feed Doug that banana which he chewed up, peel and all, spit out on the floor, and then just as quickly sucked back up into his mouth.  A disturbing and hilarious moment.

As the next Combat approaches, I thought I’d share some photos from past Combats.  Alas, I have all too few of my favorite moments captured on film.  Almost all of these are the fine work of one Joseph Picciolo.  This was captured during a Combat at the recently defunct Off-Broadway Theatre.
