If you are going to experience the Gorilla Tango Theatre, I would definitely recommend eating at Silom 12. It is a trendy Thai restaurant walking distance from the theatre. Delicious and reasonable priced meal. For a party of 5, our bill was under $100.

_“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.
