About this show

Perhaps no pair in Chicago is as hot as José Rivera and Sean Graney, and Bailiwick is thrilled to introduce Chicago audiences to Rivera's fantasy References To Salvador Dali Make Me Hot, directed by Sean Graney, artistic director of The Hypocrites. On a hot night in a California desert, Gabriela dreams that the moon plays the violin while a talking cat and coyote dance a dangerous tango. Gabriela fends off the advances of a young boy who wants to grow up too fast and learn the ways of women from his lusty neighbor, but Gabriela yearns for her husband, Benito - returning later that night from the war in Iraq. Once he's home, the couple find they have little in common anymore. Is love enough to keep them together? This magical comedy/drama is a dark and sexy fantasia about the chemistry between men and women and the ways that war changes everyone.
