Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
When two couples find their desires thwarted by parents, fate, and friends, they set out on a chaotic adventure into the Spanish wilderness. Amidst the mountains, the young couples are tangled in a web of desires, hilarious antics, mistaken identities, and revenge. Did we mention mistaken identities?
With I’m Yours!, or Deranged by Love, Precarious Theatre sinks its teeth into the idea of emotional risk-taking we all experience as we leap and fall head-over-heels in love. The ensemble incorporates many of the traditions of classical Spanish literature, which strongly influenced Elizabethan drama, including Shakespeare. In fact, Shakespeare used the same plot from this Cervantes episode as the source of his own play, The History of Cardenio, which has been lost.
Linking past with present, I’m Yours! brings classical notions of love into the here and now through rock-influenced love songs by H. P. Mendoza and the use of stylized, Picasso-inspired puppets. This show brings together several different disciplines in the company’s training including physical theater, classical comedy, and puppetry. It’s a brand new love story 400 years in the making.
