Bunny, Bunny: Gilda Radner – A Sort of Love Story | October 2015

In a series of funny, tender, and touching dialogues, former Saturday Night Live writer Alan Zweibel recalls his buddy-and-almost-lover friendship with SNL actress Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer. Zweibel claims he “merely scribbled the dialogues playing in my head,” and, indeed, these recreated conversations have a neurotic, sarcastic, and vulnerable air of authenticity. The actress and writer become fast friends on the SNL set and segue into personal revelation.

S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D Late Night Concert on the Fringe

RATED R

Baby Erection / Pity Party / S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D.

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind, psychedelic night! This unique line-up of musical acts includes Baby Erection, a noisy, dirty rock and roll band with a taste for the avant garde that features spectacular costumes and an audience singalong. Next up is Pity Party, an all-girl powerhouse that calls themselves momrock/divorcerock and, according to one rave review “packs the power to make you wanna throw a punch at that special someone who makes you feel like shit.” Philadelphia based S.T.A.R.W.O.O.D (Sociopathic Time Altering Robot Warrior Of Organic Design) rounds out the night, bringing their cyber rock quintet back to Scranton after a four year absence. Theatrical in presentation, primal in execution, and psychedelic in nature, the resulting sound is comparable to that of a woolly mammoth being downed by laser-spears, falling face first into a pagan orgy.
