Are you ready to laugh until you are breathless and smile so much your face hurts when you leave the theater? Interested in forgetting whatever troubles you for a few hours? Then visit the Troubadour Theater Company at the Falcon Theater in Burbank, currently performing Oedipus the King, Mama! Get off your couches, Orange County, and check out this show!

The multi- talented art director and lead performer, Matt Walker, takes the audience on a deliciously wild romp through Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy, Oedipus the King.

The show pulsates with the pelvis-shaking tunes of Elvis Presley in a musical parody that will make you a loyal “Troubie” (what avid theater-goers label do-or-die Troubadour fans) for life.

Snippets of the original storyline and script, Elvis Presley’s timeless songs (with some new lyrics), and improvisational repartee from the cast spin a saga with one foot in the 3rd Century BCE and the other in the 20th Century CE.


The incredibly talented Beth Kennedy kept us laughing with her double-cleavage Jocasta, which makes twisted sense because she is Oedipus’ mother and wife while James Snyder captures the smoky seductive charisma of Young Elvis.

The audience is taken on a wonderful rollercoaster ride of hilarity that leaves them exhilarated and exhausted.
 

  • Oedipus the King, Mama! will be playing at the Falcon Theatre, Wednesday - Saturday 8pm, Sun. 4pm, from August 12-September 27, 2009. Call the Falcon Box Office for tickets: 818.955.8101 or visit www.falcontheatre.com.
