LIVE THEATRE AT THE RHEEM

Will Durst's One Man Show

BOOMRAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG

January 24th 7PM

BOOMERAGING: FROM LSD TO OMG 

 

The man the New York Times calls “quite possibly, the best political comedian working in the country today,” Will Durst, proudly takes to the road with his acclaimed show that has run for 3 years in the Bay Area. “BoomeRaging: From LSD to OMG”, is an uproarious tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. In this rollicking 85- minute monologue, Durst explains why his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters should continue to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It’s what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia. A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation: culminating in an extra, added special treat- the Meaning of Life.

AN EVENIG WITH W.C. FIELDS

January 26, 7PM

 

Conan O’Brian recently called W.C. Fields “the funniest person who ever lived.”

 

Jerry Seinfeld told the New Yorker recently reported that he watched some W.C. Fields films and one could not improve on the laughs. “It was perfect: the timing, the material, the acting.”

 

And now Moraga  will be presenting the wit, wisdom and life of W.C. Fields hosted by the Primetime Emmy award winner writer/producer, the New York Times bestselling author and the grandson of W.C. Fields.  Ronald J Fields, an accomplished writer and a celebrity in his own right, will bring with him some of his famous grandfather’s hilarious clips from his classic films, as well as a biographical PowerPoint presentation gleaned from the Fields family’s personal archives. That personal trove of Fields photos, scrapbooks (compiled by W.C. himself and his estranged wife, Hattie) scripts, gag notes, and correspondences that trace W. C.’s life from the streets of Philadelphia through vaudeville, the Ziegfeld Follies, silent films and finally the talkies.
