Babylon Babylon opens April 11th

I wanted to mention to my readers that Babylon Babylon sounds friggin' cool and I recommend you check it out.

The description from their website:

Undoubtedly the most arrogant, grandiose theatre project ever attempted! Experience the Fall of Ancient Civilization in an intimate Brooklyn performance space as a cast of dozens recreates the Temple of Ishtar, home of ritual prostitution, gyrating priestesses, doomsday prophets, grasping plutocrats, undercover lovers, displaced Jews, seekers of bloody vengeance, invading Persians, and a lion.

And look at the talent involved:
