Usually, it's unwise to judge a book by its cover, or a show by its title, but in the case of Oh Dad, Poor Dad ..., the show is every bit as nutty, twisted and absurd as its infamously memorable title would suggest. The first play of Pulitzer- and Tony-nominee Arthur Kopit (Wings, Indians and Nine), this "farce in three scenes" was a hit off-Broadway, on Broadway and on the silver screen in a film adaptation starring Rosalind Russell. Lots of guys think their dad is a stuffed shirt, but poor Jonathan's pop is actually stuffed, i.e. preserved and toted around in a casket by his over-bearing mother. Little wonder things get complicated when he and his mother arrive at a luxury resort with Dad, Venus flytraps and a piranha in tow. Learn More

As part of its 12th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, Teatro de la Luna presents Grupo TeaTeatro from Buenos Aires, Argentina. About the play: “...an homage to Federico García Lorca, recreating his magic universe through an encounter with the ghosts of his characters...” A woman is thrown into the abyss of García Lorca’s stylized and poetic universe... she narrates, sings, recites, shouts and whispers... Under this woman’s skin live the ghosts of the Granada poet’s characters, who relive their ultimate, solitary hours.
In Spanish with live English dubbing.
