BWW Review: UBU ‚Ä" A SINGALONG SATIRE, Shoreditch Town Hall Photo BWW Review: UBU ‚Ä" A SINGALONG SATIRE, Shoreditch Town Hall
by Debbie Gilpin - Dec 7, 2019

Welcome to Lovelyville. President Nick Dallas has just been re-elected, and all seems right with the world - until the disruptive force of Mr and Mrs Ubu make their appearance, that is. Completely at odds with the tone of the town from the moment they open their mouths, they are unable to sit back and try to make things work in their current situation. Cue an outrageous assassination attempt and a grab for power in which the crowd is powerless to intervene. Ambitious, cowardly, strange-looking leaders with poor public-speaking skills - haven't we seen this somewhere before..?

We all know an Ubu. Impossibly greedy, unstoppably crude, inexorably hell-bent on making our country great again! Sound familiar?

A Roaring Good Time! UBU ROAR Announced At The Modern Theatre Photo A Roaring Good Time! UBU ROAR Announced At The Modern Theatre
by A.A. Cristi - Aug 19, 2019

Juvenilia's Ubu Roar returns to the Modern Theatre for two weekends of raucous revelry and satire. This new translation of Alfred Jarry's play flirtatiously thumbs its nose in the face of yowling incompetence, greedy self-interest, and the immoral wielding of power. Ubu Roar is tons of fun and irreverent as anything recently tweeted.

La mezcla de ópera tradicional con ritmos afroantillanos, uno de los grandes acierto Photo La mezcla de ópera tradicional con ritmos afroantillanos, uno de los grandes aciertos en la composición de Salsipuedes de Daniel Catán
by Julie Musbach - May 20, 2019

Salsipuedes¬†es una tragicomedia que narra dos historias que corren paralelas: la de los amantes que se buscan y se encuentran de una manera que no hubieran querido hallarse, y la de la isla del t√≠tulo que se encuentra bajo el poder de un dictador. A lo largo de la √≥pera juegan una con la otra. De esta manera se refiere Luis Mart√≠n Sol√≠s a la obra en tres actos de Daniel Cat√°n, con libreto en espa√Īol del escritor cubano Eliseo Alberto, en colaboraci√≥n con el mexicano Francisco Hinojosa y el propio Cat√°n.
