Play-House of the Ridiculous
The Play-House of the Ridiculous was a theatrical ensemble founded by John Vaccaro in the mid-1960s, and was a resident company at La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club in the East Village of Manhattan. Following a disagreement with Vaccaro, ensemble member Charles Ludlam left to form his own company, which he named The Ridiculous Theatrical Company, and took many of the Play-House actors with him.
