Scratching lottery tickets and dreaming of fountains in Las Vegas, three Floridians indulge in fantastic plans of escape, while a minor problem unfolds: the ground is sinking beneath them. The Bellagio Fountain has been Known to Make Me Cry, intertwines two divergent narratives through classic visual performance art in an earnest object-theatre examination of relationships, family, and the environment. Pairing women and water as metaphors for one another, the play explores themes of conservation and regeneration, and at its heart, our eternal quest for happiness.
This is an In Process Showing.
