(NY, NY) “The Greek God” Papadon, the Greatest Unsigned Talent Today, joins the Breaking Kayfabe team as fight choreographer. Papadon is a former ECWA Heavyweight Champion, having held the title for 560 days. He has appeared on WWE and TNA television and also has a supporting role in Darren Aronofsky’s hit film The Wrestler.

Breaking Kayfabe, Mr. Underwood’s fourth world premiere production in New York, a follow-up to the trippy drug romp The Lady Drug Dealer and The Heist (FringeNYC 2011), the political thriller The Brokenhearteds (Wings Theatre 2009), and the british sex farce The Ghost of Henderson Manor (Vampire Cowboys Saloon Series 2010 – 2011) tells the story of “The Suicide Bomber” Barry Dorchester, one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. After the Nassau Coliseum Incident, his career was over. After years of silence, he sits down with Dan, a pro-wrestling podcast host, to finally tell all. As his story unfolds, the dark and colorful characters from his past come to life in this multi-media docudrama with live in-ring action.

Breaking Kayfabe features an ensemble of established New York stage, film, and television actors, including Adam Swiderski (Blast Radius; Willy Nilly, FringeNYC 2011), Luke Guldan* (Gossip Girl; The Changing Room, T Schreiber Studios ), Aldous Davidson (The Dark Knight Rises; The Guy Code, MTV), Brian Silliman (The Particulars, FringeNYC 2012; Advance Man), Brett Davenport (Odysseus DOA, Theatre Row ), and Dale Thomas Krupla (Jesus Christ Superstar, National Tour). The creative team includes Daniel Winters, Lighting Design (Drama Desk Award nomination for The Man Who Laughs ); G. Warren Stiles, Set and Props Design and Maha McCain, Costume Design. *Member AEA.
