Theater-Going With a Head Cold

“And tell ‘em Large Marge sent ya.”
“And tell ‘em Large Marge sent ya.”

I left the house for the first time in two days last night, despite the fact that my head felt as if ... no, you know what? I’m still too sick for similes. The only reason I went was that I heard the show was amazing and, if I didn’t, I was going to be left only with reruns of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” to watch. Have you seen that show? That is not a good show.

What is a good show is Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental’s Flamingo/Winnebago, being staged as part of the Revolutions International Theatre Festival. Together with Albuquerque’s own Le Chat Lunatique, Philidelphia’s LSI presents a show that was more than entertaining enough to make me sit for two hours, in spite of the faucet my nose had become. That’s a gross recommendation. I’m sorry. Did I mention that I was so fuzzy yesterday that I made a smoothie with vegetable broth instead of soy milk?

Flamingo/Winnebago follows a loose narrative of two people travelling cross country looking for what they believe will bring them completion. But more than that, the show incorporates a simple one-piece set that is utilized in dozens of surprising and exciting ways, as well as the music of Le Chat (not to mention the acting talents of Muni, the band’s violinist and co-singer). Is co-singer a word?

I’m not doing this justice. It was my favorite performance of the festival so far. My gentleman friend loved it. Why do you care about that? Because he likes good stuff and is not artsy-fartsy. I’m the artsy-fartsy snob. Did I mention the smoothie?

You have one, ONE NIGHT ONLY to see this panoply (I just had to think for five minutes about that word) of music, acting, movement and Journey. Tonight, KiMo, 6 p.m. Go to for info on tickets and such, or check out our fabulous feature on the whole festival.
