Frank Gagliano's THE TOTAL IMMERSION OF MADELEINE FAVORINI Comes to the Barebones Black Box Theater

SandRico Productions will present "THE TOTAL IMMERSION OF MADELEINE FAVORINI" by Frank Gagliano for two nights on Friday, August 17 and Saturday, August 18 at 8 p.m. at Barebones Black Box Theater, 1211 Braddock Avenue, Braddock, PA. 15104.

    “The Total Immersion of Madeleine Favorini” is a surreal 3-performer piece (15 roles)

in which 46-year-old Madeleine Favorini journeys from dutifulness to rebellion on a gynecological examining table that takes wing.   Noted for its outrageous humor, painful discoveries, theatrical encounters and startling images, the play is directed by Melissa Martin with a cast of three that includes Adrienne Wehr as Madeleine Favorini, Jill Keating and Eric Mathews.

According to Gagliano, the late, legendary Portuguese Fado singer, Amalia Rodrigues, will also be featured - as the goddess Amalia - BUT -only on the play's sound track.

"From the time I first heard Amalia Rodrigues sing rip-your-heart-out Fado songs, written especially for her by major Portuguese poets and composers, I knew I needed to get the pain of that sound into one of my plays. I went one better; I made her a character in "The Total Immersion of Madeleine Favorini." I made her the goddess Amalia- a character not seen, but heard - and to whom the characters respond. Amalia's sound and song illuminate 46-year-old Madeleine's center of pain, as she navigates - while on her magical gynecological table - through her surreal journey to the stars," explained playwright Gagliano.
