After an enthusiastic response to last March’s presentation of “Unmoderated: A Reading of Eastsider Comments,” The Eastsider is proud to announce that the show inspired by our lively/crazy comments section is going on the road. Next stop, Hollywood, where an expanded version of Unmoderated, directed by Rory Mitchell, will be presented on June 8 at The Hollywood Fringe Festival. Click here to buy your tickets now.
A group of actors will bring The Eastsider comments section to life with tales of gentrification, abandoned sofas, homicide and hipsters. The show–featuring performances by Noel Arthur, Bob Kundrat, Kimberly Irion, Jennifer Defilippo and others–will draw upon a sample of some of the thousands of comments left by readers on the blog in 2012.
Even the often hard-to-please Eastsider commenters offered some positive reviews of the first presentation of Unmoderated :
Great event!! Hope you have many more readings. – DiMo
I’m glad I didn’t miss it! It was one of the funniest and truly endearing pieces of “theater” I’ve ever seen here in beautiful Echo Park. I recognized one of my comments, too. – Lambskins
They’re mocking us, aren’t they? – EP Neighbor
