in the new spy spoof
Funding the Arts

Ballet stars (and former CIA agents) Lucrecia Borgiaskaya and Nibor Dooh will stop at nothing to raise money for their beloved Ballet Russes de Monte Python. Their plots include attempts to overthrow corrupt foreign leaders and raid their treasuries, marry wealthy mates (one rich old Texan is snagged, but he doesn’t make it through the ceremony), and finally to conduct a Choreography Competition. A cast of eleven dancers, four artists in video roles, a clever script, and delightful computer-generated dance characters act out this over-the-top spoof by Felice Lesser.

Guest leads are Ezlimar Dortolina and Jose Edwin Gonzalez, members of the State Street Ballet in Santa Barbara, CA.

They are joined by Robin Gilbert, Erin Ginn, Victor Oniel Gonzalez, Charles Hinshaw, Djassi DaCosta Johnson, Steven Martin, Mark Peters, Rebecca Whittington, and Debra Zalkind.

Appearing in video roles are George Kunze, Lawrence Leritz, Henning Rubsam, and Gus Solomons, Jr.

Written, directed and choreographed by Felice Lesser
