Stage and Studio on 05/08/12
Dmae Roberts presents a membership drive edition of Stage & Studio featuring Olga Sanchez of Miracle Theatre. She starring in a daring new play based on the Greek myth Oedipus in Oedipus El Ray.
With Chicano swagger and sly sense of humor, Luis Alfaro transports Sophocles’ tragedy to the mean streets of East L.A. Here Oedipus does hard time for ripping off a Costco, Jocasta splashes on the Jean Naté while glued to “All My Children” and the oracle takes cash only. But the word on the street is not good and the passion Oedipus has for one woman will violate our most sacred law.
Oedipus El Rey by Luis Alfaro and directed by Elizabeth Huffman: runs through May 26th Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. All shows are at Milagro Theatre located at 525 SE Stark Street in Portland.
We're giving away tickets to this stunning new show as well as tickets to the hit Tony-award-winning rock musical Next To Normal at Artists Repertory Theatre starring Portland singer/actress Susannah Mars.
