Think pro-wrestling is all outrageous masks and pyrotechnics? Think again—there’s so much more in this 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist. The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity slams together thrilling spectacle, incredible characters and geopolitical allegory into an invigorating theatrical experience you can’t find on pay-per-view. This smackdown of a play tackles racism, drop-kicks globalization and brings a championship tale into the ring. In wrestling, as in life, behind every winner lies the story of a really excellent loser.
This production contains strong language, loud noises, fog, and strobe lighting effects.
