Says co-writer Randy Weiner, “response to the show from ticket buyers has been astounding, I don’t know if it’s the name Caligula, or the presence of a Penthouse Pet, or the cast of 26 very attractive young bodies in various states of undress, but our underground extravaganza is creating excitement that is palpable.”

Co-written by Alfred Preisser (Co-Founder, Classical Theatre of Harlem) and Randy Weiner (owner of the notorious night spot, The Box) and directed by Preisser, CALIGULA MAXIMUS is set on the last night of the infamous dictator’s life. With a cast that includes Ryan Knowles as Caligula, adult film star and Penthouse Pet Justine Joli, Lady Circus troupe aerialist Anya Sapozhnikova, award-winning competitive bodybuilders Myra Adams and Roxanne Edwards, Coney Island Sideshow tattooed muscleman Tim Dax, and an outrageous collection of over two-dozen circus performers, wrestlers, showgirls and freaks, CALIGULA MAXIMUS audiences should expect “an entertainment” that will test their limits of human intellect and appetite.
