'Lulu' opens Tuesday at The Victory Theatre BURBANK -- Vox Humana Productions begins previews Friday of "Lulu" at The Little Victory Theatre. It is directed by Jerry Kernion. Veering crazily between sex farce and bleak tragedy, "Lulu" is Peter Barnes' carnival-tinged adaptation of Frank Wedekind's proto-modern classic of sex, obsession, deception and death. Inhabiting the shadowy world of tents and trailers in a circus carnival-on-the-edge, Lulu is a woman blessed and cursed with the instinctive ability to appear the object of fantasy.

Five minutes later, the Emerson student had morphed into what he characterized as "a Jedi moose with a light saber." The fair had the same effect on many of the students, who collected paper bag hats, giant cardboard slices of pizza and face masks as the afternoon continued.
