Suburban couple Ben and Mary are hosting a cookout to welcome their new neighbors, free spirits Sharon and Kenny. But the casual barbeque soon turns into a delirious and dangerous bacchanal, shattering the fragile hold Ben and Mary have on their way of life -- with unexpectedly comic consequences. Detroit is a bitingly humorous look at what happens when we dare to open ourselves to something new and challenges our assumptions about status, comfort, ambition and community. Written by Lisa D'Amour (Ten Thousand Things, Nita and Zita), Detroit was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and one of The New York Times' top plays of 2012.

Very creative piece, high energy, Siguneza embodied the role and took on the various personae - bullfighter, clown, war nightmare - beautifully. The projections were excellent and his on-the-spot painting was fascinating to watch. Good job!
Distinguished actor-writer Herbert Siguenza of Culture Clash fame was first a visual artist. Who better to bring his writing, acting and visual art skills to a one-man tour de force that invites the audience into Picasso’s private studio for an intimate and revealing weekend.
Pablo Picasso was the first rock-star artist. His controversial and flamboyant opinions and creations gripped public imagination and forever changed the way we view art. Actor-writer Herbert Siguenza presents both the art of Picasso and his proclamations about ambition, destruction, creativity, God, love, hate, beauty, patriotism, eternity, and art as an agent of social change. Siguenza will sing, clown, paint, dance, draw, sculpt and impersonate a matador, a minotaur and a satyr.
This new workshop production puts you inside Picasso’s “Le Californie” art studio on the coast of France and inside the creative mind and work of one of the most inspiring artists of modern history.
