The TEAM's ROOSEVELVIS Opens Tomorrow
by BWW News Desk - Oct 7, 2013

RoosevElvis ('Rose-of-Elvis') tells the story of Ann, a thirty-five year old meat-processing plant worker living in Rapid City, South Dakota. Painfully shy, Ann has recently begun to inhabit the character of Elvis Presley in the privacy of her home. In his skin, she begins to find the courage to open herself to the world. She meets and sleeps with Brenda, a woman whose online dating profile lists taxidermy and Teddy Roosevelt among her interests. The two take a weekend camping trip to the Badlands, but it doesn't go well. Frustrated by Ann's passivity about her own life, Brenda leaves, prodding Ann to do something, like like get in a car and drive to her hero's house in Memphis. Ann begins a hallucinatory drive south, accompanied by the increasingly present and invasive spirits of Presley and Roosevelt (played by the actresses). As Graceland comes even closer, these two icons of American masculinity battle for what type of man or woman Ann should become. Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway,RoosevElvis is a new work about gender, appetite, and the multitudes we contain. (more...)
