Producer/Director joe s. is honored to have worked with David Amram in Miami, The Finger Lakes, Atlanta and Boston with incredible musicians and The Atlanta Symphony. His love for open air events goes back to the days of THE PHONE BOOTH, his theatre company in Europe. He was also directing and creating with George Isherwood SHEER MADNESS, PAN OPTIKUM Berlin and several other theatre companies in Germany and Holland. These shows have played in over 200 theatre festivals in Holland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria and Switzerland.
We named our group THE PHONE BOOTH because we were touring most of the time and had to pull over on the road so joe s. could manage the company business from phone booth to phone booth. We had two vans, a big green Ford for the equipment and props for all our shows in repertory. Then we had a blue Volkswagen Bus for the performers and their belongings. Between PHONE BOOTH and SHEER MADNESS, "Madness", we had people from the U.S., Holland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, South Africa, Spain, Scotland and at then Yugoslavia.
PHONE BOOTH was asked to represent American Culture for the 750 Year Anniversary of Berlin (posters above right and below) and BONN 2000, the anniversary of one of the oldest European cities. It was a great humble honor as it was when my friend, Wouter de Berg (founder, MELKWEG international performing arts center and FESTIVAL OF FOOLS; both prototypes for all of Europe) made ELVIS PRESLEY DAY in Amsterdam for my show ELVIS.
The Freiburg Festival was one of the top in a large festival circuit throughout Europe along with Koln, Frankfurt and Amsterdam's FESTIVAL OF FOOLS. In 1985 I had five shows playing from three different theatre companies. The most any director had in the history of the festival. When I went to see JESSE JAMES the people were overflowing down the steps of the theatre and I couldn't get in. After Europe there were shows all over the U.S. and Canada. In Miami I got into the upper echelon of the fashion world with Charlene Parsons and produced many fashion shows.
