Bark worse than bite?

Now at the Ontological we have Witness Relocation's VICIOUS DOGS ON PREMISES, with text by Saviana Stanescu. Every night director/choreographer Dan Safer changes the order of scenes and the actors pick assignments at random.

At a certain point tonight when the four performers crept silently and maniacally toward the audience, hands outstretched, a man let loose a bark that caused Laura Berlin Stinger to scream, and then wonder from the stage, "Who is that man?"

It was Richard Schechner.

Reminds me why we do live theater.
