It's really very clever and wonderful. Too short!!! Very cleverly put together. Must take a lot of "backstage" organization.

Description

The internationally acclaimed “One-Man Living Cartoon Factory,” Ennio Marchetto, makes his first D.C. appearance with Ennio, a hilarious romp through American pop culture. Working with a rollicking soundtrack of our favorite divas’ greatest hits and a startling array of paper cutout costumes, Ennio has audiences on their feet cheering as he blazes his goony trail through a blizzard of pop icons—from his unforgettable send-up of Celine Dion’s titanic hit to the heartfelt spoofs of Dolly Parton, Cher, Placido Domingo, Stevie Wonder and Elvis.
