Seth Lepore's Kickin' Ass and Takin' Names

Salem Theatre presents Seth Lepore’s Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Names

Beginning Friday, November 21 Seth Lepore will be at the Salem Theatre for a three night run of Kickin’ Ass and Takin’ Names.

Performances are Friday, November 21, Saturday, November 22 at 7:30pm and Sunday, November 23 at 3:00pm. Shows take place at 90 Lafayette Street in Salem, MA.

Nationally touring theater artist and solo performer Seth Lepore ups the ante on interactive solo theater by taking suggestions from his audience members on index cards. Lepore challenges his audience to see if success and failure are merely outdated concepts or very real measurements of what it means to be human. Most people walk away in disbelief, wondering how the show could be completely unscripted. Watch as absurdity and sincerity high five!

Using a stream-of-consciousness approach, Lepore builds characters that are steeped in hundreds of hours of research and interviews on what success and failure mean to people in terms of money, career, relationships and social status.

“Sometimes the scene itself is funny; sometimes it is the randomness and sheer absurdity. And very frequently, it’s just because Lepore has a great stage presence, and has such an intensely physical style that it’s impossible to stop staring at him.” -Aisle Say Twin Cities
