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
Written, interpreted & directed by Saulo García.
As part of its 12th International Festival of Hispanic Theater, Teatro de la Luna presents Compañía Saulo García, Inc. from Colombia.
In a vacant, solitary space, we are surprised by the presence of a juggler, who not only fills the space with his antics, but insures us that no one will be alone and all will know liberty. We become immersed in his effective humor and wisdom, as, like a good trapeze artist, he invites us to jump into the unknown without a net.
In Spanish with live English dubbing.
