Steven Huang, Musical Director
Your Best Friend: Jennifer Goltz, soprano; Your Analyst: Ruth Christensen, mezzo soprano; Your Boyfriend: David Gordon, tenor; Your Ex-Husband: Tim Haggerty
March 27, 1998
A dark comedy exploring Your deepest insecurities about the people most important to You: Your Best Friend, Your Boyfriend, Your Ex-Husband, Your Analyst. They reveal that they have formed a conspiracy to make You miserable by neither loving You as much as You want, nor cutting You adrift. They express their honest opinions of You, then join in a series of nightmarish romantic couplings - Your Analyst with Your Boyfriend, Your Boyfriend with Your Ex-Husband, etc. They close laughing riotously at a recording Your Analyst has made of Your most recent therapy session.
Jarringly eclectic-juxtaposing surrealism, horror-movie melodrama, jazz, lyricism, trance music
