The Magic Theatre's newest comedy
production, "The Line of Least Exist
ence," was written by Obie Award
winning New York playwright Rosalyn
Drexler with original music by Oma
hans Mark Nelson, Frank Fong, Bill
Farber and Eric Goolsby. It will be
directed by guest artist Mike Hitzel
berger. Omaha audiences will remem
ber Drexler's popular wild comedy,
"Room 17C," which the Magic Theatre
premiered in 1983.
Drexler's new comedy upsets apple
carts while quick-change artists and
false prophets slip on each other's
banana peels. Here comes another red
herring to catch us with our pants
down, leaving us with silly grins as we
compare how things are to how they
should be. In this zany, comedic romp,
"appearance is everything and style is
a way of life," says a character in the
Artistic director Jo Ann Schmidman
said, "It's so American in its zaniness;
American's live to laugh, we all can use
a good laugh "The Line of Least
Existence" provides plenty. Any resemb
lance to someone you know is your own
"The Line of Least Existence" is a
rollicking show with music that carries
on the Marx Brothers tradition of exag
gerating and immortalizing the famil
iar. The main character, Dr. Taloon
Fraak, an obstetrician-psychiatrist, has
his maniacal fingers in underworld
dealings. He is hounded by his pas
sionate wife, crazed by his mistress,
threatened by a mad patient, adored by
his talking dog and spied upon by the
"Feds," who may be more than an inno
cent musical group. Drexler runs the
audience through a verbal chase
accompanied by an incredibly light
hearted, eclectic musical score.
Noted Omaha artist William Farmer
designed and created the set, Kenda
Slavin designed and executed the fabric
work and costumes, and Jim Schum
acher created the lighting design. Com
pany members are Brian Bengtson,
Margie Du Re, Bill Farber, Joe Fogarty,
Frank Fong, Eric Goolsby, Mike Hitzel
berger, Mike Nelson and Jennifer Shep
ard. Recommended for mature viewers
who enjoy a good laugh, "The Line of
Least Existence" opened at the Omaha
Magic Theatre, 1417 Farnam, on March
13. All performances begin at 7:30,
March 20 through 23, 27 through 30.
