United States of Banana, a play based upon the novel by Giannina Braschi

June 17, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - June 20, 2015 @ 9:30 pm

Colombian Stages debuts at the Schapiro Theater ‘United States of Banana,’ a zany and radical play based upon the postcolonial dramatic novel by Giannina Braschi, one of the most revolutionary and original writers in Latin America today. The work dramatizes the post-911 American psyche around the politics of empire and independence—and brings to life classic characters Zarathustra, Hamlet, and Segismundo into a 21st century New York landscape. The work depicts the city as “the Darwinist capital of the Capitalist word” and U.S. imperialism as doomed as “a chicken with its head cut off.” Directed by Juan Pablo Felix. Free and open to the public. Reservations: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/946965
