This is an entertaining - non-linear, 85 minute show. The cast is very good. The subject matter, me not being all that familiar with Bob Rauschenberg, was curious. A series of seemingly connectected, random vignettes make up show. Some are lighthearted and funny. Some are serious and sad. Some are just odd. But I found it very entertaining regardlesss. Don't go looking for the standard, linear intro - middle - conclusion story arc. There isn't one.
_“I work in the gap between life and art.” —Robert Rauschenberg
This boldly entertaining performance piece chronicles the adventures of a wild collection of characters including a trucker, a homeless man, and a couple working through the difficulties of romance. Their stories are told in a variety of styles and forms, ranging from melodrama to stand-up routine, and the action is punctuated by a roller-skating Mistress of Ceremonies and plenty of dance breaks. It’s a road trip through the American landscape in a play made as one of America’s greatest artists, Robert Rauschenberg, might have conceived it if he had been a playwright instead of a painter.
