Marc Geller to Star as Madame Irma in The Balcony

Marc Geller
Horizon Theatre Rep will present Jean Genet's The Balcony at the ArcLight Theatre, October 11 through November 4.

In The Balcony, in a city aflame with revolution, Madame Irma runs a brothel in which men from all walks of life act out S&M games while dressed up like powerful figureheads of the regime: the Bishop, the Judge and the General of the Army. The play offers perhaps the ultimate statement on the relationship between sex, power and iconography when Madame Irma and her patrons appear on the Balcony in their costumes in order to calm the city after its royal palace and rulers are destroyed.

Marc Geller will star as Madame Irma. The cast also includes Kristen Lazzarini (Carmen), Kevin Gilmartin (The Envoy), L.B. Williams (The Bishop), Sheilagh Weymouth (The Judge), Frank Palmer (The General), Rafael De Mussa (The Chief of Police). Additional cast members include Lyndsey Anderson, Tara Cioletti, Crawford M. Collins, Mitzi Peirone, Orlando Rivera, Andreas Damm, Hunter Macnair, Timothy Mele, Victor Joel Ortiz and Imran W. Sheikh.

The production is being directed by Frank Licato and features music by Donald Stark, costume design by Kathleen Doyle, set design by Rebecca Lord-Surrat and lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno.
