Much Ado About Lebowski Sees 'the Dude' Through the Eyes of the Bard; Chaos Ensues
|The Knave, he dances.|
To call it "over the top" would be to mistakenly imply that Lebowski has a top. While on the one hand this show is exquisitely written -- filled with deft Shakespearean wordplay and sharp pop-culture jabs -- it isn't really "written" at all; it's more like the producers (SF IndieFest and the troupe Primitive Screwheads) took a bunch of Lebowski mania, Shakespeare minutiae, Coens trivia, and miscellaneous references from across the big bright rainbow of geekdom, and flung them at the wall to see what sticks.
Amazingly, almost all of it does.
The result isn't so much a "play" as it is a "spectacle." You could easily imagine this Lebowski as a Burning Man theme camp.
|Minstrels and cowgirls? Sure. Lebowski has both.|
