Woodminster Theater Presents 'Flower Drum Song' PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Thursday, 04 September 2014 12:22

090414e2Woodminster Summer Musicals will present the David Henry Hwang version of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical Flower Drum Song starting this weekend at Woodminster Amphitheater in Joaquin Miller Park, 3300 Joaquin Miller Road in Oakland.

Performances are Friday through Sunday (Sept. 5 through 7) and next Thursday through Sunday (Sept. 11 through 14). Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m., and the Thursday and Sunday shows begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $28-$59 ($2 discount for children/seniors). Tickets for the preview show on Sept. 4 are $18 at the door. For tickets, call  531-9597 or go to www.woodminster.com.

Catherine Gloria plays the role of Mei-Li, a young woman who flees communist China in the 1950s and starts a new life in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Hwang’s new version of the 1958 musical honors the original material, but has returned to the themes of C.Y. Lee’s novel:  cultural assimilation, the relationship between generations, and the struggle to become authentically American without abandoning traditions.

The original 1958 version was groundbreaking at the time, but the film version was thought to be stereotyped.

Hwang said his intention in his version is to create something new while keeping the spirit of the original musical.

CAPTION: Catherine Gloria plays the role of Mei-Li in the Rogers and Hammerstein’s musical Flower Drum Song opening this Friday at the Woodminster Amphitheater Theater.

DMT’s season-opener features an ensemble of local performers:  Eden Neuendorf as Cass; Diahanna Davidson as Lois; Drew Reitz as Kip, Jeffrey Hoffman as Captain Mike, Kendall Tieck as Glen, Michaela Greeley as Karla, and Tina Rutsch as Barbara, Janie and many others.

Wonder of the World has a distinctly postmodern sensibility. The characters who inhabit the play’s universe work long and hard for connections in increasingly alienating and absurd environs.  One of America’s most successful contemporary playwrights, David Lindsay-Abaire writes with a very distinctive voice; he is a master of comic repartee and intelligently crafted wordplay.

Wonder of the World is a serio-comic mixture of the funny and farcical and the dark and disturbing, achingly sad and real and outrageously silly and absurd, at one and the same time.

The story follows Cass as she embarks on a wild adventure of self-discovery, leaving her home and husband Kip after finding out he is not the man she thought she married.

At Niagara Falls, Cass encounters other equally eccentric and compelling characters, each with a dark secret, each on his or her own personal quest: Lois, a suicidal alcoholic appointed by Cass to be her sidekick; a pair of elderly madcap detectives; white knight Captain Mike of the Maid of the Mist sightseeing tour boat; a clown therapist; and, last but not least, Cass’ sad-sack, sweater-clad husband, Kip. By the time the curtain comes down, the coincidences are piled one atop the other, life is revealed to be a series of happy and unhappy accidents and the randomness of the universe is the only certainty.

CAPTION: Eden Neuendorf as Cass goes on a wild adventure in Wonder of the World by David Lindsay-Abaire, playing at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre.

Ample parking is available across the street at both the Downtown Parking Garage and Washington Plaza.

The movie for Saturday, Sept. 27, will be Ghostbusters (PG), and on October 25, How To Train Your Dragon II (PG). (Note: movies may be subject to change.)

Movies begin at dusk; pre-movie entertainment and raffles start at 7:30 p.m. Come early and have dinner at a participating downtown restaurant, and pick up a raffle ticket and bring it to the movie. See a map of downtown restaurants at www.sanleandrodowntownassociation.org or www.downtownsanleandro.com. Don’t forget to bring your own blankets and chairs.
