If you love Madonna, especially her documentary Truth or Dare you are going to love Truth/Dare: A Satire starring the one and only Salvatore Antonio (co-creator and a face you may know from a whole slew of TV shows, including Saving Hope, Paradise Falls, and Remedy). He is hilarious as Madonna as he re-lives scenes from the doc on stage with the other cast members, including co-creator Adamo Ruggiero (of Degrassi fame), Damien Atkins, Keith Cole, Chy Ryan Spain, Kyle Travis Young, and Nick Green.
This year a hugely amazing guest star will take the stage for the final performance on Sunday, June 29 – the very man who choreographed her video for Vogue (which was nominated for an MTV Award),who danced onstage during the Blond Ambition tour and who featured prominently in Truth or Dare, as well as her Justify My Love video! If you are a massive Madonna fan like me, you will recognize this man: Jose Xtravaganza. Now you know what night I’ll be there.
The night is pure fun and interactive with dance breaks and even a prayer circle with the cast. I pretty much laughed through the entire performance when I first saw it and cannot wait to see it again.
TRUTH/DARE is a satirical, live staged-reading and multi-media presentation performed by a cast of notable Toronto performers and aficionados; combining memorable text from the film with photography, original video, and dancing to the infectious music from the Blond Ambition tour. Much like the Rocky Horror Picture Show, the spirit of TRUTH/DARE is participatory; the audience is invited to dress up in their finest early ‘90s streetwear, echo their favourite lines, and join the cast in dancing to the music of the era. As the Queen of Pop demands: ‘Dance, sing, get up and do your thing!’
Next week Truth/Dare is back for a limited run during WorldPride 2014 in Toronto!
