'American Night' adds four shows
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival will add four performances of "American Night: The Ballad of Juan JosÃ©." The new show dates are 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Sept. 22 and 29; 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 10; and 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21.
Los Angeles-based performance troupe Culture Clash with writer-comedians Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas, and Herbert SigÃ1/4enza teamed up with actors at OSF to present this comic mix of past and present, stereotype and truth. Jo Bonney directs.
Reviewers have made statements about production such as "as fluid as it is hilarious," "leaves you breathless," "give it stars all the way off the page" and "proves to be just about the most perfect way to start a very big project on the very big topic of American history and identity."
