Now THIS Is Offensive

'A Masked Ball' Features Nude Actors In 9/11 Aftermath Scenes:

A German opera house is to unveil a provocative new production staged in the ruins of New York's World Trade Centre.

It features naked pensioners and Mickey Mouse masks, Hitler salutes and Elvis impersonators.

The self-consciously outrageous September 11th staging of Verdi's 'A Masked Ball' has been dreamed up by Austrian director Johann Kresnik.

He has described the concoction as a populist critique of modern American society, aimed at showing up the disparities between rich and poor, which attracting a large audience.


Here Are Some Additional Photos From The Offensive Play:





I don't even think I need to comment on this insanity but I will anyhow. The entire play is clearly shocking for the sake of being shocking. There's unnecessary nudity, offensive imagery and off-color political commentary in every scene in this pathetic attempt at performance art. Between this and the Jesus orgy drawing making the rounds, I'm not sure which is more upsetting. It's clear that people are using the most shocking scenarios they can dream up to net some instant press coverage. Scandals sell tickets and these folks are in the business of selling no matter who they offend.

It's not the liberals, it's the Christians. If Jesus wouldn't have been such a fag none of this would have happened. Guys loved his beard. So do I.

F'n Christian Conservatives Neo-cons have don such a great job ruining the reputation of America around the world and they blame liberals for ruining America????Take a look in the mirror. I can't understand how you can stick up for yourselves anymore… it's a loss cause blaming others for basically everything that is wrong in the world and forgetting to look at the root cause of most problems… yourselves.
