Teatro Vista To Debut THE DREAM KING
A man falls in love with the woman of his dreams, while in his dreams. Step into the world of The Dream King, a genre-bending classic love story told with a lush musical score and mostly without words.
A world premiere by Chicago's Teatro Vista, The Dream King is a stunning new work of physical theater created by ensemble member Marvin Quijada, who also performs the title role. Teatro Vista ensemble member Sandra Márquez directs.
Imaginative, inventive, sweet and sometimes scary, The Dream King will evoke wonder and delight as it delves into places where sometimes you must confront your personal demons in order to prevail.
