"Maintaining a tightrope balance between grand neoclassicism, sunny '70s kitsch and the company's inbred topical spontaneity, chief lunatic Matt Walker and his demented triple-threat forces yank the House of Atreus and ABBA into taut, tickling symbiosis...Indeed, this compact, jam-packed hybrid -- which travels to La Mirada after its Burbank run -- may be the Troubies' most refined synthesis of artistic mission and subversive attack yet." - LA TIMES
About the Show
Troubadour Theater Company
Directed by Matt Walker
Opening Night is June 13 at 8pm.
Join us for a hysterical musical reimagining of the classic Greek tragedy Agamemnon, the sordid story of seduction and scheming, with the sweet Swedish sounds of the Seventies. In this irreverent Dancing Queen-filled romp, the Ovation Award-winning Troubadour Theater Company brings the noise, the funk, and the dysfunctional-family vibe to this masterwork of the Greek canon. Why does Cassandra's S.O.S. plea to Take a Chance on Me fall on the deaf ears of the Elder Chorus? Will Clytemnestra's plan to kill Agamemnon come to fruition and will The Winner Take All? Will the Watchman ever get to sleep and say I Have a Dream? Will Aegisthus be able to pronounce his own name at Waterloo? Bloody and bold, fierce and funny, this production by the masters of mayhem is sure to entertain and enlighten.
