Hot on the hells of Behind the Beyond, the NIA Theatre Lab is all set to shine the spotlight on some pretty mean despots and villains in the whacky send-up “The Dude with the Golden Tune.”
The Dude with the Golden Tune will also see Behind the Beyond Director Albina Matuzko, in a co-directing and acting role, immediately following the staging of her hit “fake” comedy.
According to Director, Loes Nauta, “The Dude with the Golden Tune” is a compilation of scenes played a famous spy and eccentric villains – hell bent on taking over the world.
The Dude is the hero in the various famous spy stories, adored by many women, however always manages to wind up in a pickle: in chains, in shackles, tied up or overpowered by an enormous laser weapon.
The villains, on the other hand, are immature, theatrical, bombastic and vicious - and that’s where the fun begins, with theatrical license to take a closer look at them: Dr. No, Elliot, Silva, Goldfinger and Mr. Big all make their appearance in this chilling, exciting and comical review of a handful of James Bond movies.
NIA invites all theatre-lovers (and even curious onlookers) to come out and see a wonderful exhibit of collective cinematic showstoppers, when five talented actors take to the Black Box stage to walk you through the exciting life of a well-known spy.
Direction is in the hands of Loes Nauta, the NIA drama teacher, co-directed by multiple actors: Dieudonnee Ostiana, Alexandra Stroud, Albina Matuzko, Nascha Kagie and Loes Nauta, who will be showing their most evil and comic sides for each of the characters.
