Troubies ABBAMEMNON

Troubadour Theater Company's

ABBAMEMNON

The hysterical mash-up musical
of the classic Greek tragedy, Agamemnon,

and the music of ABBA!

August 1 -3, 2014

 

 

 

"A triumph of supreme silliness"

 - LA Times

Featuring the music of the seminal Swedish band ABBA, this rambunctious romp by the Troubies brings the noise, the funk, and the dysfunctional-family vibe to life in this masterwork of the Greek canon.

The award-winning Troubadour Theater Company is a free-wheeling, no holds barred, Commedia Dell'Arte flavored, slapstick driven Los Angeles-based ensemble of actors, musicians, and comedians. Their fast-paced, laugh-filled, loose adaptations of classic plays make for a unique and exciting experience for theatre-goers of any age. The "Troubies" have combined the beauty of classic texts with feats of acrobatic physicality, comic routines, and musical numbers. What makes for even more fun is the clownish, interactive style in which the performances are presented. In recent years the Troubies have put their spin on all genres of classic tales, such as Fleetwood Macbeth, Much A Doobie Brothers About Nothing, A Midsummer Saturday Night's Fever Dream, Two Gentlemen of Chicago, and Frosty the Snow Manilow. Recommended for ages 13 and up.

CRITICS ARE RAVING ABOUT THE TROUBIES!

"Even by the Troubies’ typically reliable comic standards, this commedia dell’arte-infused mash-up of classical lit and pop culture is an exceptionally hilarious and energetic romp."

- LA Times (Read full review here)

"a sassy musical theater extravaganza..."
- Stage and Cinema (Read full review here)

"…one of the 21st century’s funniest comic troupes"
- OC Weekly
