About this show

In An American Book of the Dead (The Game Show!), three lucky contestants live and die their way through myriad American lives as they compete to achieve their Soul Goals and win the grand prize of perfect enlightenment. The entire history of the United States becomes their playing field -- from Jamestown cannibalism to Andy Warhol's grooving New York, from the robber barons of the Open West to the World Trade Center attacks and beyond. In between lives, the contestants visit the Bardo realms, surreal worlds between death and rebirth where Stonewall Jackson and Harriet Tubman are husband and wife and where a young Bill Gates looks for love in all the wrong places. There is an additional performance on Sunday, July 18 at 2pm.
