Open Call Auditions for Daughters of Lot, Staged Reading. Author: Alexis Roblan. Director: Rachel Kerry. Producer: Brain Melt Consortium. The reading will be the evening of 10/30/10, with three to four rehearsals scheduled from 10/03/10 through 10/24/10. SYNOPSIS: Daughters of Lot is a modern-day burlesque act -- with a twist. Tonight's entertainment is a sexy and silly retelling of an ancient story, until the burlesque performers do a trick that requires a little more than flexibility, summoning the ancient characters of their story into reality. Enter into the mix: Daughter 1 and Daughter 2, Lot's daughters from the Biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorrah. Led by their charismatic ringleader, Atlanta, the burlesque Chorus sets out to teach the Daughters how to be modern, sexually-empowered women, for the benefit of the audience. While this work is currently in development, it's an excellent opportunity to build a relationship with an up-and-coming company. For information overload about Brain Melt Consortium, visit
