Vampire Lesbians Of Sodom : Fantastic Reviews for Eliza Reilley & Nicholas Gell

Eliza Reilley & Nicholas Gell Receive Fantastic Reviews for their performance in Vampire Lesbians Of Sodom. One of the longest running plays in Off-Broadway history, Vampire Lesbians of Sodom tells the saga of two fatally seductive vampiresses whose paths first collide in ancient Sodom. Their bitter rivalry as bloodsuckers but more importantly, as actresses, endures for two thousand years with stops along the way in 1920’s silent movie Hollywood and contemporary Las Vegas. This new production by Brevity Theatre Co fuses together vaudeville, cabaret and drag for a Mardi Gras show not to be missed.

“In a show highlight, Eliza Reilly as a fourteen year old virgin ready to be sacrificed”

“The dueling lesbians are played by Nicholas Gell and Eliza Reilley, he sophisticating camp and she cheezing up showgirl”

Lisa Thatcher

Eliza Reilly and Nicholas Gell as the two tussling vampires excel (in what are easily the most truthful performances of Sapphic blood lust I’ve seen for millennia.)”

Veronica Kaye, Thetre Red

Eliza Reilly is a knock out as Madeleine Astarte, her confident and bold approach to the material is fantastic, her vocals impress as well.”

JOY, The Buzz from Sydney

Eliza Reilly as Madeleine Astarte is sure-footed and engaging, adding an unexpected polish to the very bawdy material. Her Mae West-style delivery of punch lines is charming and effective, and the actor displays a natural flair for timing that endears herself to the audience with seemingly little effort. Astarte’s arch nemesis La Condessa is played by Nicholas Gell, whose very energetic and extravagant performance never feels out of place no matter how over the top he pitches it. It is a rare opportunity to witness an actor be completely ridiculous, and enthralling us with the hammiest presentation one can possibly imagine.

Update 20th May 2014:  The King’s Kids  Check out Riley in this great story from the ABC!

“For some kids, singing on stage in front of hundreds of people would be terrifying. For others, it’s a dream come true. In this next story we meet some kids that definitely belong in the ‘dream’ category. They’re stealing the show in a world class production of the King and I. Matt found out what it’s like.” – http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4005270.htm
