Erato and Luigi: Pandemonium 2011

Saturday, September 10th, the great artist Erato from The Excavation was revived by Theater Ninjas in a new setting: Cleveland Public Theatre's Pandemonium! This time, Erato was accopanied by his assistant and familiar, Luigi (Ryan Lucas). Luigi helped Erato put THE Pan in Pandemonium!

From far away lands your balloon will blow/Bring Pan to his party, Erato/Set his goat god powers free/Through your familiar, Luigi

We had a blast doing our show and improv-ing for a solid two hours with the Pandemoaners!

Cool Cleveland wrote a feature on Pandemonium, which shows a photo of me as Erato, and they also took video! Erato and Luigi begins at 55 seconds in. I love embodying him and would enjoy more opportunities to do so!
