CV Rep's to Bring Terrance McNally's A PERFECT GANESH to the Desert Stage, 1/22
A Perfect Ganesh stars Mueen Jajan (Broadway's Bombay Dreams) as Ganesha, Sharon Sharth as Margaret Civil, Kathleen M. Darcy as Katherine Brynne and Sean Galusszka as Man., The play follows two wealthy, middle-aged suburban friends, Margaret and Katherine as they embark on a pilgrimage to the mystical world of India. Their travels are closely observed, and at times directed, by the Hindu "prankster" deity, Ganesha, who guides them on an intoxicating, soul healing and oftentimes comical journey through their secret dreams and tragic pasts. While on their madcap expedition, the women's deepest secrets are revealed, and their adventure becomes an enlightening mission to remove the emotional obstacles that are blocking their way to a more peaceful, spiritual existence. "I believe the theatre is a spiritual place that often helps to enlighten our path through life. Some plays do this more than others. A Perfect Ganesh is a good example of what I'm trying to share. Terrence McNally not only challenges the artistic team, but ultimately you the audience to take a journey with his characters in finding a more evolved understanding of life's loses, hopes and dreams. Prior to reading this play, I had no idea what Ganesha was or stood for but now I'm grateful to McNally for taking me on this journey. I hope you will be too", says Artistic Director, Ron Celona.
