Special Dec 13 - Jan 13, 2019  
Theatre of NOTE Special
 
How could it miss? It was riding the coattails of what was at that point the most popular movie of all time. It featured appearances by cast members, including Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. It had great guest stars like Bea Arthur, Harvey Korman, Art Carney and (in holographic form) Jefferson Starship and Diahann Carroll. There was even a cartoon sequence (the first appearance of Boba Fett). The narrative involved the celebration of the Wookiee holiday Life Day (because there’s no Christmas in Space), as Chewie’s family wants to celebrate despite the intrusion of Imperial Storm Troopers. What could possibly go wrong? Everything.

Highways Performance Space and Gallery King of the Globe:  memoirs on a Skewer
 
A tyrannical, self-proclaimed king marvels at his greatest triumph, a large, fork-impaled globe. In King of the Globe: Memoirs on a Skewer, a series of plays within the play reveal the cyclic nature of insatiable avarice and thirsts for power, as well as the futility of it all. To preserve his legacy for all time, the unnamed king recounts his personal tales to his servant who must record each detail precisely under the threat of being skewered and slow-roasted over the king’s fire-pit. So that his memoirs will be conveyed with upmost accuracy, the king reenacts his entire journey that lead to his conquest of the globe, bringing his past to life to reaffirm that his suffering, persistence, and industriousness make him a deserving ruler. Hand-crafted masks bring the myriad of eccentric, absurd characters to life.
