Sure, Dave Letterman will soon leave his full-time gig. But those with a passion for social commentary, meaty reflections on important issues and fall-out-of-your-chair laughter need not despair.
The Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre delivers again, with a one-man show that delivers the goods.
Ever since 2014’s sensational sold-out Oklahoma Premiere of “One-Man Star Wars” starring Charles Ross, CityRep patrons have clamored (LOUDLY) for our favorite equity company to bring him back.
According to the all-but-sainted Don Jordan, founder/director for CityRep, “WE HEARD YOU and we’re happy to announce that Charlie has agreed to return to the Freede Little Theatre with his latest quirky theatrical extravaganza, ONE-MAN LORD OF THE RINGS™.”
Jordan explained, “Our friend Charlie loved his first trip to Oklahoma City and worked hard with us to schedule a return visit during his current international tour for a one-weekend engagement.” Wait, that’s not all: “We have added a special Thursday night performance to accommodate the demand for seats.”
In “ONE-MAN LORD OF THE RINGS™,” Ross recreates the enchanting world of Middle-Earth with nothing more than elbow pads and his outrageous imagination, and takes his audience on a journey through the trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King in 3600 seconds of unbelievable kinetic entertainment.
It’s June 4 through June 7, 7:30 p.m. evenings, 1:30 p.m. matinees.
The performer is Charles Ross. The director is TJ Dawe. The place is Civic Center’s Freede Little Theatre. Ticket information is available here.
Be there. Aloha.
