 The Electric Pharaoh is the BROS’ 6th original rock musical and takes place in a future Egypt where electricity is currency.  A powerful Pharaoh rules by keeping the people divided but a boy from the lower caste uncovers a secret that starts a garage rock revolution!  If you’re interested in scheduling an audition slot e-mail bros.auditions@gmail.com.

If you’re wondering what a BROS show is like it’s facemeltingly awesome! With the tragic passing of GWAR front man Oderus Urungus earlier this year, this may be the closest you’ll get to that kind of theatrical metal mayhem and trust, the BROS are having so much fun you’ll want to get close – like catch something close.

I got a chance to get up close and personal with some of the BROS a little while back on the second leg of their World, okay Mid-Atlantic Domination Tour when they stopped in at The Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria with their amazing remount of their very first show, Gründlehämmer.

We spoke with one of Gründlehämmer’s villains, the statuesque Greg Bowen who plays the evil King Lothario, a heroine, Danielle Robinette, also statuesque, who plays the heroic mentor Halvor and Jared Margulies, one of the co-writers of Gründlehämmer along with being the BROS’ Outreach Director and Grand Wizard of Rock Wizardry.

Lucrezia Blozia
Lucrezia Blozia has been part of the local alternative performance scene since the early ‘90s (she started when she was 6). She was the leading, ahem, lady at notorious pervpunk theatre company Cherry Red where she honed her skills in plays like “Cannibal Cheerleaders on Crack” and “Poona the F*ckdog and Other Plays for Children”. She was part of girl group Eva Brontosaurus in both New York and LA where the trio opened for Margaret Cho’s monthly burlesque show, The Sensuous Woman. She’s proud to have originated roles in all five years of Hope Operas and played everything from a flipper derby girl to a were-squirrel to a Pam Greer-type cop/barista. She’s a regular collaborator with Landless and Borealis Theatre Companies and Astro Pop Entertainment. She loves you and is surprisingly easy to work with for someone so simultaneously humble and exquisitely beautiful (oh and talented). You should hire her.
