Meet the Cast
With the exception of that time he spent in a Mexican prison for male prostitution, Brett Sanders is pretty much just an average guy. The Mexican prison thing was really just a big miss understanding. One day while visiting Tijuana’s Red Light District; out of sheer curiosity, Brett decided to walk up to a group of under cover cops and asked them what was the going local rate for a blow job. However seeing how his Spanish was so horrible, they accidentally mistook him for a gay male hooker trying to negotiate a group rate with them, and then the whole thing just got blown completely out of proportion.
Brett was born and raised in a small town called Grand Rapids Michigan: home of the Keebler Elf and the 80s sensation The Debarges. After graduating with honors from a very “prestigious” online university where he majored in neuro-surgery and minored in lesbian studies, he eventually set out to the big city in order to make a big name for himself. Unable to find a job in either of his chosen fields, he somehow found himself in New York working for a small and broke down company selling copiers for a living.

Over the summer of 2011, Alex was incredibly proud to act in their piece “FIT”, written by Erin and directed by Ross, in the NYCFringe Festival. “FIT” received two awards, “Fringe Pick” and “Critics Choice,” among 250 pieces, and has recently been picked up for publishing.

Lindsey Gentile is an actor, writer, comedienne, and all-around gal-about-town. Lindsey is a LEO. She enjoys a sensible Makers Mark neat with ice on the side, and lives in a small studio apartment in Hell’s Kitchen with her dog, Oliver (who is a small dog, but not a stupid small dog). She adopted him thinking that he would be a great way to pick up men, and it hasn’t worked yet. She has a blog called Big City Siren (bigcitysiren.com) where she reports from the front lines of single life in NYC. She is from South Florida and I went to the University of Miami where I received a BFA in theatre. She is also one half of the comedy duo: kelly and lindsey (www.kellyandlindsey.com).
Bobo the Monkey
Bobo the Monkey is a very special monkey. Freud would say that Bobo represents Brett’s id. Bobo raises real questions about Brett’s Plushy/Furry proclivities while providing Brett with much, much needed companionship.
