nain rouge

Slipstream Theatre Initiative is excited to delve into the luscious world of French Farce with their third show of the season, “Nain Rouge.” Based on the lesser known “La Mi-Careme (Mid-Lent)” by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy, Nain Rouge is a story about a raucous hotel and its wacky tenants on the night of the popular Detroit festival. Audiences will be able to join the actors on stage throughout the night, as this farce has an interactive game built into it. Join the zany Marguerite Lamberthier and her trove of admirers on this light-hearted journey of indulgence. 
    The cast is comprised of Mandy Logsdon as Madame Papponnet, Luna Alexander as Marguerite Lamberthier, Ryan Ernst as Boislambert, Steve Xander Carson as Baron de Moranchet, Daniel Miller as Alfred, Tiaja Sabrie as Victoria, Laura Heikkinen as Madame de Nantoulas, Jackson Abohasira in several revolving roles, and newcomer to the Slipstream Company, Amy Cassell as the dry-humored concierge everyone loves, Mitaine. The production features costume design and direction by Bailey Boudreau with assistant direction by Victoria Rose Weatherspoon and set design by Ryan Ernst. 
    Slipstream celebrates its roots as it approaches its three-year anniversary, and brings an untold classic to the stage. With a contemporary mindset, Slipstream seeks to offer unabashed whimsy and fun amid a charged political climate. Won’t you join them for the festivities?
