OEDIPUS EL REY
1/16/2014 to 3/2/2014

Rhythms pound. Violence escalates. A Chicano delinquent fights his way to the pinnacle of gangland power. But not even he can win the ultimate battle against fate. Sizzling, sexy, and startlingly contemporary, playwright Luis Alfaro’s adaptation tears Sophocles’ timeless Greek tragedy out of its mythic past and catapults it into the vivid, vicious reality of today’s L.A. barrios. Contains adult themes and language, violence, nudity, and cigarettes.

I saw the Saturday matinee performance on Feb.8. I was so impressed by the entire experience, but I would especially like to give my compliments to David Lugo, who played King Laius. He did such wonderful things with his voice both as Laius and then with the other two actors as the three elders/fates/sphinx. I hope to see (and hear) him in future productions.

WOW!!! Incredibly powerful play, incredibly powerful performance. Oedipus el Rey examines the age-old question of whether humans are guided by fate alone or whether we have some control of our destinies. This playwright, cast, and theater proved to me once again that I find theater as good in Dallas as in New York! Season tickets to the DTC rank right up there with all the necessities like food and shelter!
