Mixed Messages is a story about what happens when different portions of society fail to understand each other. The play centers around Lexi Voskoff, a brilliant math student who is in danger of losing his scholarship due to the problem he has communicating with others because of Asperger's Syndrome. Daniela, an online friend of Lexi's in East Los Angeles who also has Asperger's, has qualms about coming out to her traditional mother. And Lexi's father Paul, a widowed musician, loses a gig at a Manhattan megachurch for not being a Christian. As Lexi and Daniela imagine that they are actually from another planet, they soon find that the planet is real, and needs their help to solve a pressing conflict.
Anton Spivack has always been a theatre person, growing up listening to show tunes and working with the 52nd Street Project on more than one occasion. In New York City he has acted in plays including Happy Hour, Spring's Awakening, Peter Pan in the Big Apple and The True Colors of Weedle, and currently writes and performs sketch comedy with Monkeys Typing Shakespeare. Mixed Messages is his first full-length play, but will certainly not be his last.
Join us for a yummy reception after the play and the opportunity to voice your opinions about the play in a discussion with the actors and director and the playwright.
