Opening No. 126: Phamaly Theatre Company’s “Vox Phamalia: G.I.M.P.

This year’s show, again directed by Edith Weiss, features all-new material including “Sex and the Pity,” “Suicide Hotline” and “Your Own Private Hell.” Plus, they explore the subject of dwarf-tossing. The cast includes 15 actors with disabilities, including veterans Lucy Roucis, David Wright, Amber Marsh and James Sherman, along with new or near-new faces Harper Liles, Dominique Frary, Daniel Wheeler, Jeff Zinn, Khea Craig, Paul Migliorelli, Stewart Caswell, Kim Jackson and Naomi Morrow. Intended for audiences 16 and older. Remaining showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday (Oct. 31-Nov. 2); plus 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, at the Laundry on Lawrence, 2701 Lawrence St. Call 303-575-0005 or go to www.phamaly.org.

OPENING 126
Who’s a douchebag? According to the Disability News Team (Daniel Wheeler, left, who has Crohn’s Disease, and Stewart Caswell, who has cerebral palsy), it’s the CEO of Goodwill Industries, who lobbied for legislation that allows businesses to pay the handicapped a fraction of minimum wage based on their performance on a test that measures their ability to complete ordinary tasks against able-bodied people.
