‘Penis’ plays L.A.’s Coronet

Creators consider additions for California run

“Puppetry of the Penis,” the hit from Off Broadway and the West End, will make its West Coast debut at the Coronet Theater in Los Angeles on Aug. 13.

Conceived and created by David Friend and Simon Morley, “Puppetry” consists of two naked penis puppeteers on stage presenting “the ancient Australian art of genital origami.” Show has also played the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Melbourne Intl. Comedy Festival, where it debuted in 1998 and returned for four months earlier this year, as well as Toronto and Montreal.

Morley and Friend are contemplating adding new installations — there are already about 40 — for the show to celebrate its California run; Pink’s Hot Dogs, the Hollywood sign and a Chinese Theater are under consideration.
