New York City
In a mythical world, during brutal times, a curse has plagued the land ever since the chosen ones infuriated the gods. It is up to Soon-Jal, a non-pureblood, to end the curse and the misery that has wrought her land for years… even if it means killing everyone in her path. The Jaded Assassin is the world’s first original action play, with over 60 minutes of fight/action choreography. It’s a high-powered adrenaline rush of a play, and it kicks ass – literally.
“The first decapitation gets a laugh. So do the cast’s open mouths, frozen while speaking about something upsetting. The shadow puppets are hits. But The Jaded Assassin, an innovative martial-arts fantasy, is all about the battles! Just as I was thinking that an Off Broadway stage was the wrong place for this sort of thing, a slow-flash strobe began, giving the characters the appearance of flight or at least levitation. Take that, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon!”
