ED MALIN ON ASYMMETRIC
"Asymmetric" by Mac Rogers, produced by Ground UP Productions in association with Gideon Productions, is now playing at 59e59. This show, directed by Jordana Williams, was originally developed in episodic form through the Vampire Cowboys Saturday Night Saloon. I am familiar with the work of Mac Rogers, and at this point if you are not I am sure you will rectify that situation soon. More engrossing than the best sci-fi interrogation novel ever written ("The Demolished Man"), "Asymmetric" shows what happens when you love someone out of all proportion, and also have lots of weapons.
