The Elephant Piece

book, music, lyrics by Darryl Curry

directed by Al D’Andrea

musical direction by Jim Colby

choreography by Betsy Dunphy

A roving band of vaudevillian miscreants stages a faux "minstrel show," launching the audience of The Elephant Piece on a journey into musical mayhem and absurdist spectacle that ultimately touches the heart and gives hope that our species might just survive its own destructive nature. This musical tale is a funny, biting satire full of elephant lore, song-and-dance flights of fancy, and surreal imagery that blends to make an expressionistic carnival more relevant than ever as the majestic elephant once again faces unrelenting devastation by poachers
(note: mature themes)
