The only thing I love more than a good road trip are the great stories that come out of it. With that, I wanted to share a little information about a new production from New York City-based performance ensemble The TEAM. Their latest, RoosevElvis (pronounced Rose-of-Elvis), features Kristen Sieh and Libby King hitting the road as two American icons of masculinity: Theodore Roosevelt and Elvis Presley.
On a hallucinatory journey from the Badlands to Graceland, the spirits of the Trust Buster and the King of Rock and Roll battle over the soul of Ann, a painfully shy meat-processing plant worker, and what kind of man or woman she should become. Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway, RoosevElvis is a new work about gender, appetite, and the multitudes we contain.
RoosevElvis opens at the The Bushwick Starr October 8 and runs through November 8. Preview tickets are $20 and regular admission is $25. To buy tickets and learn more go to www.thebushwickstarr.org
