at the 24th Street Theatre
Upstage center is a large green box, labeled "The Amazing D'Oro and His Lovely Assistant." Neither D'Oro nor his assistant is ever seen or heard of again, but all sorts of other people and things emerge from the box, including the band Red Light District (including Shok, Alexander Burke, and vocalist Juliette Storace). The box will later disgorge a snake, a flashy diamond ring, multicolored balloons, and an unidentified gentleman in a party hat who appears briefly, then disappears forever. There also seems to be a shark in the box—or is it the Loch Ness Monster?—which we never see, though it launches an attack.
