Who Loves Judas? at Darkhorse Theater 

The Film's the Thing

The Film's the Thing
Back in February, Nashville playwright Dane Dakota's original play received its world premiere at the Darkhorse Theater. Who Loves Judas? proved to be a surprisingly engrossing, if structurally flawed, social satire involving the contretemps between younger and older folks--conservative thinking versus the subversive. Since then the author has worked his script into screenplay form and set out to make a film of it, which he in fact did, co-directed with Stephen Yake. This two-night event features a test screening of the film in its current form—more music and editing are to come—as the filmmakers assess their work and solicit feedback. Not a single actor from the original stage production is featured in the movie, but the cast is filled with familiar Music City performers, including People's Branch Theatre artistic director Ross Brooks, Michelle Spaziano, community theater favorite Cinda McCain, Perry Poston (from cable access Channel 19's Stubby's Place), Elan Crawford and Greg Welsch, who recently was seen in GroundWorks Theatre's The Road to Bethlehem. Two short films by Bob Pandillo--Wallace and Would You Cry if I Died?--serve as the celluloid appetizer before the main event, which Dakota stresses is considered a work in progress. Admission is free.
Fri., Jan. 9, 6:30 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 10, 6:30 p.m., 2009
