The title characters of The Norwegians are really, really nice ... especially for hit men. Not-so-nice are Olive and Betty, the two women who hire them to bump off their ex-boyfirends -- but nice or not, all the characters in this strong, bitter comedy shine. Film noir atmosphere shades the otherwise blinding white snowdrifts of a Minnesota winter in this oddball, if inspired play from C. Denby Swanson, writer of The Death of a Cat and Atomic Farmgirl. An off-off-Broadway hit that made audiences howl and The New York Times gush with praise, The Norwegians now comes to Historic Hoover Theatre. Tunuviel Luv directs the work's West Coast premiere for Renegade Theatre Experiment. Learn More

Since the shows includes the Flamenco school students, the performance levels vary over quit a range. However, overall the show is fun, the Flamenco dresses are fantastic, and it is a good value (despite Goldstar's steep $4 service charge on a $7 ticket).

The uniqueness of Brisas de España emanates from the combination of Flamenco-Spanish dance presented on stage by Artistic Director, Carolina Lugo.

and musicians interlacing rhythms with one another to create a colorful canvas of artists on stage.
