This show is more than delightful as it is insightful as well. The performer takes on multiple distinct personae as he weaves a tale of right wing fundamentalism run amuck. If you have a liberal funny bone this show is for you. I loved it.

Wow! Freakin’ brilliant! David Caggiano plays more than a dozen characters and it’s such a virtuoso quicksilver physical performance you feel like you’re watching a show with a really big cast. With scenes-within-scenes and sound/light effects,...continued

In Jurassic Ark, Brother Dallas has a made-for-TV ministry and one majestic mission: He’s hell-bent on making a big-budget blockbuster showing that Creationism is Truth! That man and dinosaurs once lived side-by-side! But sins from the preacher’s past (now 17 million views and counting) and Satan himself threaten his holy vision. Not to mention Hollywood – where studio hotshots have their own twisted take on bringing in a big box office.
Busting with its own special effects of whirlwind physicality and a compelling soundtrack, Jurassic Ark is written and performed by David Caggiano, who has performed at The Marsh, StageWerx’s Solo Sundays, CounterPULSE’s WordsFirst, Berkeley’s Tell It On Tuesday and, of course, EXIT Theatre.
_Jurassic Ark _is directed by solo specialist Mark Kenward, who has created, performed, developed and directed nearly two dozen one-person shows, including his own acclaimed adaptation of Moby Dick.
