Dutchman

Dutchman at Mixed Magic Theatre

Kerry Georgi stars in Mixed Magic Theatre’s Dutchman as a sly Eve, an apple crunching temptress on a New York subway preying on an unsuspecting black man (played by a very good Yakim Parker) circa 1964. She tries to seduce him, he’s not entirely disinterested, and then things go terribly awry. Lula, a white lady with glittery earrings and theatrical mannerisms, doesn’t seem too far off from Holly Golightly, the manipulative man-izer from Truman Capote’s beautifully written, hideously racist 1959 novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (Georgi played Holly in 2nd Story’s very bad production of the show this summer. She’s much better here.) Amiri Baraka’s one-act is normally 75 minutes long but this punchy, minimal production somehow plows through in half that time. Mixed Magic is actually doing two Baraka plays simultaneously; The Slave (also from 1964) is playing concurrently in the theater’s larger space.
