Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy, one of the most produced new plays in American theatre, propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilizations stumbling into its future. A paean to live theatre, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.

OKC Civic Center Music Hall
Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre
Presented by Canterbury Voices
Sunday, April 2, 2017 - 3pm

Do you remember the 1956 epic film The Ten Commandments starring Charlton Heston?  It is still shown on television each year, and dramatizes the biblical story of Moses.  The same story is the subject of Handel’s Israel in Egypt, which begins with the Israelites’ bondage in Egypt, followed by descriptions of the plagues that Moses calls down upon the Egyptians to persuade the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. Eventually the Pharaoh is persuaded and the Israelites are led out of Egypt by Moses, only to be pursued by the Pharaoh’s army of 600 chariots.  The Israelites finally arrive at the Red Sea in front of them and trapped by mountains all around.  Seeing Pharaoh’s soldiers coming, they are terrified.  God tells Moses to stretch his hand out and the Red Sea waters part. The Israelites flee through the Red Sea, a wall of water on either side and dry land under their feet.  The Egyptian army, arriving at the sea, charge in after them, but once the Israelites are safe on the other side, the sea rolls back in, covering the Egyptian army, its chariots and horses.  The Israelites celebrate the power of their God and their deliverance.

What a dramatic story! And this setting by Handel is full of “word painting” where the sound of the music imitates the text imagery. The plagues, especially, inspired him to create some of his most colorful painting – one can easily hear the hopping of the frogs, the buzzing of the flies, the pounding of the fiery hail, and the eerie darkness.

It is a great irony that Handel who is associated with some of the greatest choral music in the English language (composer of the famous Messiah) was in fact a German whose lifelong interest was Italian opera.  Handel wrote more than 40 operas, borrowing from some of that music for his choral music.  Israel in Egypt is unique in its abundance of choruses and double choruses, and now stands second only to Messiah as Handel’s most beloved work.

Taylor Mac's dark comedy is the story of a 21st century prodigal son. A veteran with PTSD responds to his father's stroke by coming home to help care for him, but finds himself in the aftermath of another regime overthrow. His mother (formerly a battered wife) and his newly transitioned transgender sibling are finally thriving in the household that used to be ruled by dad. HIR (a gender pronoun pronounced "here") is a metaphor for both gender and place, and the play will have audiences crying in laughter and sympathy as they attempt to discover if we can all adapt to live here, now.

"Mac [...] isn't so much remaking the world in his own image as he is addressing subjects that remain, remarkably, underplayed on the American stage: what bodies mean and what stories women are allowed to tell or perform." - The New Yorker

"A crackling production of a remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

He's also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows...just in case things get messy...again.

Based on the cult classic film of the same name, The Toxic Avenger is a campy yet topical musical that explores pollution and the monsters (or heroes) it creates. Joes DiPietro wrote the book of the musical, Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan wrote the music, and together they wrote the lyrics. The Toxic Avenger is an unconventional musical about an environmental scientist who sets out to save New Jersey from the toxic waste that is filling the city, but in the process mutates into Toxie, "the super hero that New Jersey needs!" Reviewers agree that this is the musical for B-film lovers, and great fun for those "in the know and in the mood."
