KARAOKE BACCHAE (2015)
Euripides’ tragedy, The Bacchae, in a sports bar on karaoke night during the Stanley Cup. Karaoke is canceled to watch the game. The god Dionysus takes the human form of Iggy Pop and leads a horde of drunken sorority girls and cocktail waitresses into a battle of submission for control of the karaoke machine, against the bar's sado-masochistic management. Sung and shouted under the ultimate karaoke playlist, driven by dance, and featuring text from Drunk J. Crew, deranged sorority girl emails, and a sexually frustrated drunken high school english teacher.
