The play is a blending of the Hamlet, Oedipus, and Dracula stories. Your host for the journey is none other than Lucifer. Satan's question is, "If God is so great, why is the world such a mess?" He proposes an unusual and extreme remedy for the problem.
The mood of the evening? A shadowy dungeon full of sultry glamor, and a hint of whiskey in the air. The sounds? Tons of Phillip-Glass-sounding stuff, with hints of spaghetti western melodrama a-la-Ennio-Morricone. The movement/dance? The well-known mixture of Klein irony, energy, and variety of dance genres. This world premiere is brought to you by the guy who presented ZOMBIE, the award-winning Off-Broadway play, adapted from the novella by Joyce Carol Oates. (www.zombietheplay.com). And the gal who brought you La Enferma. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIWAKZQdLiU)
