"The Epic Tale of Kalesius and Clotho" is a deadpan farce about the many forms of obsession and a hilarious chronicle of the first filmmaker to make a movie based on Koufos' ancient Greek myth Kalesius and Clotho. Director Kyle Gilman is obsessed with Jennie, his former leading lady. Unfortunately, she has moved away to New York and wants nothing to do with him. When he finds Janine, an actress who bears a striking resemblance to Jennie, he is sure that she will be the perfect replacement. Kyle's struggles to overcome his own incompetence, the incompetence of his cast and crew, and his obsession with Jennie, lead to increasingly awkward and comic situations. Written by
O.M.G. I was very, very impressed by this production: its wit, its heart and its overall professionalism. I gotta say how Jamie Carmichael is my new favorite actor, certainly the cream of his proverbial crop--by "crop," I am of course referring to the assortment of broad-shouldered young men with winsome mops of straw-colored hair who steal every scene with their combination of boyish good looks and deadly command of their native language, be it English or Italian. That's right--Jamie is the best of these. In addition, I was blown away by the script supervision on this production. Any mistakes in diction or timing (few though they were) were surely the fault of the actors themselves, who are, after all, human (except for JC).
