Ryan Taylor, the Washington Rogues and the Cap Fringe

An interview in the Washington Post with Ryan S. Taylor, the great guy who directed "Busted Jesus Comix" in DC a few years ago. 

"In some ways, the inception of Washington Rogues took place in New York when artistic director Ryan Taylor went to see the weirdest performance he could find — “Busted Jesus Comix,” performed in a six-floor walk-up — after taking in such big-name shows as “The Lion King” and Baz Luhrmann’s “La Boheme” (“which was awful,” Taylor recalls)."

For the record, the old Abingdon space at Dyre and 42nd was a fifth floor walk up.  The building is gone now.  But I definitely remember from the summer of '03 - five flights. Five.
