*** "BEST OF THE FRINGE" – The TVolution Awards ***
*** ENCORE AWARD WINNER ***
WTFN is proud to bring back The Second Coming Of Klaus Kinski - every Thursday night beginning January 25, 2018 at Studio C!
After an Encore Award-winning run at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival, for which it was named “Best of the Fringe” by TVolution, Kinski re-opened September 29 for a 7-week Ovation-Recommended run, presented at The Blank's Second Stage Theatre within a ceremonial Kinski Sacrarium which explored different aspects of the man’s life through relics, curios, exhibits, and film installations.
Klaus Kinski is one of the most celebrated and controversial actors in the history of world cinema. The reckless abandon with which he approached both life and art left him tortured, demonized and worshiped. Before his famed collaborations with director Werner Herzog (Aguirre, The Wrath of God, Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo), Klaus Kinski was a tortured B-movie character actor who had become a touring sensation for his live wire theatrical performances. It was during this time that Kinski starred as Jesus Christ in a one-man show that had taken him a decade to write. Audiences were outraged at Kinski’s audacious portrayal of Jesus and heckled him mercilessly. After only 2 performances Kinski canceled the tour.
It’s now 2017 and actor-writer Andrew Perez (David Miscavige in “My Scientology Movie”) does battle with Kinski’s demons in an effort to resurrect him and finish the job in one last command performance, The Second Coming of Klaus Kinski.
People will tell you he is dead. Don’t believe them!
