Olympia Dukakis’s Head

Ahhh! Giant floating Olympia Dukakis head!

A poster for The Singing Forest featuring Olympia Dukakis’s head.

Note: this isn’t the first time the Public has used completely inappropriate web advertising.

The image is bad enough, but the advertising copy for Craig Lucas’s play The Singing Forest is even worse. It uses phrases that activate my “this play will be awful and derivative” warning alarm, whether or not the play actually deserves it. Observe:

…deeply buried secrets from the Holocaust…

…today’s world of Starbucks, celebrity and therapy…

…one family’s journey to reconcile their past.

Performance contains nudity.

OK; that last one’s not a deterrent.
