The Golf Wars tells the progressively wild story of
the dueling pianists, performers at a familiar East Village music venue, who
test the durability of their act by taking it to Oahu Hawaii!
There, amidst their self-promoting, they develop involvement with pivotal
figures in a conflict between US military, which occupies 50% of the island, and
a foreign owned golf resort.
Peter Dizozza’s musical
theatre work has been acclaimed in London Time Out for its “Sondheim meets
Burroughs vicissitudes.” Barry L.
Cohen, critic for The New Music Connouisseur called him "a fellow
with musical ideas in his soul." His
CD, “Pro-Choice on Mental Health,” continues to receive airplay and critical
attention. The comment of Luke
Martin in his Splendid Magazine review -- “The album engages a topic that's of
increasing importance, but seems to do so without any tedious voice-of-God-style
proclamation. And it's good, dorky fun that's not afraid to be serious. That, I
like.”-- will also apply to “The Golf Wars.”
This production is mounted
as part of The WAH Center’s UNITY CANVAS WORLD PEACE multi-media art exhibit,
which runs concurrent with the performances.
Prior Dizozza works
produced at The WAH Center include a ghost story, “The Eleventh Hour,”
“The Last Dodo” and the surrealist musical mystery play,“Prepare to Meet
Your Maker.” He next appears at
the piano, as a performer at 7:30 and as host for a late night open mike at 11,
at a familiar East Village venue, SideWalk Café (94 AveA), on Sunday, September
29th. He and director
Tom Nondorf will next collaborate on a revival of the British 50’s musical
“Salad Days,” opening in November.
Advance copies of Music CDs containing high
fidelity recordings of the catchy "Songs of The Golf Wars," produced
by Major Matt Mason USA for Olive Juice Records, will be available at all
