Of Posters, Banners, Bookmarks, Newspapers, Stickers and Baal

All around Perth, our Posters, Stickers and Bookmarks are starting to pop up. These things appearing all the way from Freemantle to Mandurah, CBD to Rockingham.

If you think that's a lot of bookmarks, it doesn't touch the surface of how many of them are going around

Yes. That's a gym locker room. Won't say which one though

And these stickers are popping up everywhere as well. We are not accountable for them being put up everywhere. We just give them out and have plausible deniability if they pop up near your area.

Our Media Reviews page has a link to an article from the Mandurah Coastal Times previewing Baal, with focus on our first Baal, Steve Capener, a Mandurah resident.

There'll be an interview with Steve, one of our directors Ralf Rauker, and one of our actors Moana Lutton, that will be shown on 'The Couch' on the 28th of November at 3. Do check it out. 

We also have a radio interview on RTRFM 92.1 on the 24th of October at 3 PM, featuring another director, Mikala Westall and of our actresses, Jessica Allen.

9 days to go people? Have you booked your tickets on the Tickets page?

And finally, do check out our Cast and Crew Profile page, to see who plays what, who does what, and who they think their own personal Baal is (and yes, I know. There's a lot of Charlie Sheens there)

Cult of Personality

Listen to the song.

Now look at the pictures.

Baal builds a myth that surrounds him, like Keith Moon. This is the story of the real Baal.

New Pictures and something new to listen to

Three weeks away. Have you booked your tickets yet? No? Wanna know why you should book them soon?

Well, we've got new pictures up at the Photos page.

Here's one of those new pictures.

And if you notice, there's a little play button on the right. Play that. It'll hypnotise you into ordering some tickets.

No it won't actually. We're not at Hogwarts. No matter how much one of our directors looks like Alan Rickman.

But do order your tickets soon! Three weeks away.

P/S: If you're wondering where Murdoch University is, we have a map at the Tickets section.

Let us explain

If you look properly at the header above and the poster to the right of the website (I bet a lot of you literally turned your head to the right to see a wall/person/ghost), you'll see that we put a lot of very famous celebrities there. And you're wondering why, aren't ya?

As weeks go by, we discover that Baal resembles a lot of celebrities. And not just any celebrities. Tragic celebrities.

Look at the very first picture. That's Kurt Cobain. Lead singer of Nirvana (Editors Note: Please. Nobody ask us who Nirvana is. If you have to ask, your childhood is not complete). He wrote brilliant songs, brilliant albums, was considered untouchable in the world of music. And his brains ended up on his garage door when his finger pulled a trigger (Some say it was Courtney Love's finger).

For those younger readers, his story is comparable to Amy Winehouse. She's another we all considered a Baal. Most of the cast worship her (Not the writer. He hates her) and her talent.

And she refused to go to rehab. Such a negative person.
(I can hear my bosses screaming at me as I write this. And the rest of the cast. And crew. And readers. And her fans)

It's not just in the music industry that parallels of Baal can be found. Who can forget the late and great Marlon Brando?

He was young, he was immense (literally), he was marvellous. And he was untouchable.

Who do you think is your Baal? Tell us in the comments section.

Introducing, The Acts

To whet your appetite. The 4 acts.

Act 1.

Act 2.

The Cabaret

Act 3

Act 4

There's more of those in the Photos section. There'll be more photos coming up in the coming weeks, a video or two, and more stories to tell as the time progresses. Stay tuned.

On a side note:

Since the very first week of planning, there's been a cast/crew member of this production that has been sick/injured/hospitalised. Two directors have been in the hospital, one of the actresses had an eye infection and had to wear an eye patch, the webmaster whose writing this now had an ankle sprain last week and just yesterday one of the actresses fell to an allergic reaction to something.

Now you know why we call it The Baal Virus.

It ain't no Scottish Play, but it is scary to say the least.

(And yes. Actors are so superstitious we don't even want to type the name out)
