Theatre - Reflections from The Breakfast Club
“It is amazing that it has taken this long for a stage version of ‘The Breakfast Club’ to come along,” proclaims Producer/Director/Writer Dana Discordia.
Well, if the hordes of devoted fans who waited in line to see the early performances last summer are any indication, it has certainly been worth the wait.This hilarious parody of John Hughes classic 1980’s “fuck-off” flick tenderly, albeit nastily, pays homage to the high school characters we have all come to love. After several years of collaborative development, the play has emerged as a quick-cut, fast-paced comic tribute to a film whose dramatization of high school teen angst is as funny and relevant today as ever.
Satirical, irreverent, and ultimately filled with love for its high school film genre, 1980’s origins, and stereotypical teenage types, this Breakfast Club convenes once again in New York City East Village.
