Fast-forward to 1971, the high-flying ways of our Hollywood royalty are anything but gentlemanly. Mad Cat Theater will narrow the theme even further with its modern adaptation of the play and its lead character Monsieur Jourdain. Viva Bourgeois will traverse the debauchery of the era with a character of the same name, except now he looks a whole lot like Elvis. So, Viva Graceland, where kung fu, prescription drugs, and cheeseburgers rule, and commercials for Viagra arent the most common reason to hear the king.
Viva Bourgeois will open 8 p.m. Friday at the Light Box Theatre, located at 3000 Biscayne Blvd. in Miami. Shows run Thursdays through Saturdays until August 22. Tickets cost $25 and up. Call 305-576-6377, or visit madcattheatre.org for more information.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: July 24. Continues through Aug. 22, 2009
