Eric Rubin Brings The Troubadour's Mustache to Redwood City in August
Beginning in the summer of 2017 Dragon Theatre will be open late on select Friday nights to showcase some up and coming local talents and help make downtown Redwood City the peninsula's premiere destination for entertainment.
Admission for these shows is $17 in advance or $20 at the door and each ticket includes one beverage to enjoy during the show.
All shows are aged 21+. Doors open at 10-ish (if there's a show beforehand it might be closer to 10:15p) and shows start at 10:30p.
This series is sponsored in part by the Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission.
We kicked off the series in July with "Michael Riley and Friends: A Night of Serious Comedy." We're following up this successful kick off with Michael's opener, Eric Rubin. Eric is bringing his new show, The Troubadour's Mustache: A One-Man Musical Comedy to downtown Redwood City in August. The show was written by Eric Rubin and was directed by Dan Griffiths.
Cue the music. A pouty Spanish troubadour needs, no DEMANDS, all of your attention. What follows is a fusion of looped sounds, beatbox, hip hop/freestyle, storytelling, improv, metal guitar riffs and Eric's awkward bird-like dancing.
In 2014, Eric waved bye-bye to the bureaucratic monotony of Washington, DC and embarked on a journey that would become the GREATEST journey ever journeyed upon. He created deep pools of sweat in a Burmese monastery. He chased that experience with a heaping glass of hedonism at the Thai paradise "The Sanctuary," where liver cleanses and acid tabs are consumed interchangeably. He fell for a Danish ice queen, an Austrian shamaness, and an especially cold bowl of coconut ice cream.
What happens when you unwind your personal narrative at 35? The voice of doubt, confusion, regret, and siren songs of lives we might have lived grow strong. Eric will strive to reassemble the puzzle pieces and slay the voices beneath the stage lights. Odd, yes. Strange, sure. Groundless, Maybe. Somehow universal? ...I'll get back to you...
