Now Playing Onstage in Tempe - Week of 5/11/2014 THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY
Tempe Performing Arts Center
4/25-5/17/2014
A kick-ass comedy. For real. Finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY is a drop-kicking, body-slamming, balls-out theatrical happening set in the larger-than-life world of professional wrestling. Macedonio "Mace" Guerra plays the fall-guy for mega-successful "THE" Wrestling League, losing again and again to the impossibly charismatic champ Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of Chad's, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo: put them onscreen as terrorists. "The delicious crackle and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire." - NY Times
