Pay $15, get a key to a private room and a cell phone, close the door behind you and ...?? get a call from Calcutta? is it theater, is it phone sex porn, or is it yet another provocatively inspired marketing attempt to get audiences to the theater? Maybe it's all three: "Call Cutta in a Box" at the Goethe Institute is by award-winning theater experimenters Rimini Protokoll (Haug/Kaegi/Wetzel) and it's getting attention, press and audiences. In this competitive theater scene, it's a win win win.
You be the judge.
Meanwhile, I'm getting me a ticket. I wanna see for myself.
Through Feb 27 at the Goethe Institute.
