“It is not the mission of art to wallow in filth for filth's sake, to paint the human being only in a state of putrefaction, to draw cretins as symbols of motherhood, or to present deformed idiots as representatives of manly strength.”
— Adolf Hitler at the National Socialist Party rally in Nuremberg, September 11, 1935.
Mein Comps is a gaaaaay fantasia on irrational international themes, in a which a certain dictator sells discounted theatre tickets. Mhmm. It is written by and stars the shrewd, undomesticated, and Chicago-based (but Pittsburgh-born) Tyler Anthony Smith, who is absolutely composed of several rabid woodland creatures and glitter/fake grapes found on the floor of a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
It's just another typical day for Adolf Moira Angela Hitler. Hungover. Sore. Constantly on the phone, dealing with fools who want orchestra seats to Cats at bargain prices. But wires are crossed when a mysterious customer from a month ago wedges his way into our fabulous trainwreck of a leading man's heart. Will Mademoiselle Hitler end his streak of sleeping around and settle down? Will he sober up in time to remember that today's the day he has an audition for the role of Amanda in yet another revival of The Glass Menagerie? Are you more confused now than when you started reading this semi-synopsis?
Written by & Starring Tyler Anthony Smith
