References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot
by Jose Rivera
Directed by Dan Lombardo
Previews May 24 & 25. Opens May 26, Closes June 9. Show starts @ 8pm.
Tickets: $10 - $35
Rivera's magical masterpiece finds Gabriela talking to the moon ? played by a man in a Panama hat playing a violin on her refrigerator. When her husband Benito returns from war, the limits of love are tested, the desert comes alive like a surreal Dali painting, and Gabriela?s housecat dances with a wily coyote. In this comic drama, the moon hovers over all, offering haunting music and dreamlike wisdom. Appearing with WHAT?s seasoned actors will be the young, talented actors of Boston?s TC Squared Theater.
