ODDVILLE: a love story?
America’s Got Talent Season 8 quarter-finalist comedian Dave Shirley and Robert Dubac have teamed up to create the hilarious new comedy, ODDVILLE: a love story? This remarkable show has already been described as “an extraordinary theatre experience”, “visually stunning”, “inventive” and “gut-achingly funny.”
Audiences have never seen anything like ODDVILLE! Think Blue Man Group meets The Forty-Year-Old Virgin and you’d be close. Hysterically indescribable, ODDVILLE is a unique piece of brilliant modern theater jammed with ingenious props, amplified physical comedy, complex multi-media imagery and a cool nostalgic score. It’s a love story with limited words but a big heart that connects your imagination to your funny bone with fits of laughter.
ODDVILLE: a love story? makes its appearance at Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts’ Studio Bee for a limited engagement on August 15 at 7 p.m. and August 16 at 5:30 p.m.. Tickets priced at $50 will go on sale on Friday, March 22 at the Pikes Peak Center box office, online at PikesPeakCenter.com or AXS.com or via phone at (719) 520-SHOW.
Tickets are also available at The Broadmoor World Arena box office and BroadmoorWorldArena.com.
Howie Mandel from America’s Got Talent called Shirley’s performance “Brilliant!” and The Denver Post proclaimed, “Dave Shirley is the master at creating a comedy show. He draws from Chaplin, Monty Python and the early years of Saturday Night Live.” Shirley is a veteran of Denver’s top comedy clubs.
As the curtain rises on ODDVILLE our hero, Lonely 1, is caught between existing onstage or inside a giant video screen. With one foot rooted in reality and the other in an alternate digital universe, he battles the oddest of obstacles on his quest for true love. Can he find happiness in a cardboard box? Can the audience help him find his underwear? Will an evil cat sell him a new pair of hands? Why does his true love have a flat screen for a head? How many lemons will fit in his pants? And, why can he kiss but not talk?
A love story wrapped in clever wit and irresistible charm, ODDVILLE is an unforgettable evening of modern theater that will leave you laughing, thinking and wondering, “How on earth did he pull that off?” Audiences agree, ODDVILLE is truly a comedy that has no borders. Even those too cool for theater find ODDVILLE cool enough, indeed.
