WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Pig Iron Theatre Company presents James Joyce is Dead and So is Paris: The Lucia Joyce Cabaret by Deborah Stein. Directed by Dan Rothenberg. James Joyce's daughter Lucia was an avant-garde artist. Lucia was a Jazz-Age woman, a modern dancer, lover to Samuel Beckett and Alexander Calder. . . wait a minute. James Joyce had a daughter? James Joyce is Dead and So is Paris: The Lucia Joyce Cabaret recreates the absurd life of Lucia Joyce-the cross-eyed, Irish beauty, who, born in the shadow of her father's fame, died in the wake of obscurity behind asylum walls. Before you get all down in the mouth, James Joyce is Dead. . . is not a tragedy-it's a tragi-comedy. Pig Iron Theatre Company has created in this work a vibrant, buoyant, exuberant, and even whimsical rock opera, steeped in vaudeville, dada, and hard-hitting rock-n-roll.
