| Open: 10/19/05 Close: 10/30/05
What is "The American Dream?" Is it real? Or is it just an ideal? And how do you get it? Does it inspire us? Or enslave us? "The American Dream and Other Fractured Fairy Tales," highlights a cross section of characters as they struggle to try and find some meaning in their lives, some common sense to hold on to and to attain their "American Dream" in the often harsh, confusing and sometimes, frightening landscape that is today's America.
Combining live music and stories by Jesse Cameron Alick, Erin Blackwell, Cusi Cram, Steven Dietz, Brian Dykstra, Rebecca Gilman, Kristina Halvorson, Allison Moore, Robin Rothstein & Sarah Schulman, their poignant, often hysterically funny and heartbreaking tales bring to life the daily battle against ignorance, greed and overwhelming apathy.
