Super plays debut

The Berlin Blues and Super Indian debut at the Autry National Center

Two plays written and directed by Native American talentThe Berlin Blues features a cast of six actors and an accompanying blues guitarist. Using humor to give us insight into love and losses in the land of the Ojibway, the play focuses on a large German conglomerate that descends upon a small Canadian reserve with visions of building the world’s largest Native theme park, “Ojibway World.” This theme park comes complete with bumper canoes, a dream catcher made of laser beams, and Dances With Wolves: The Musical!

In April, Native Voices will present a special run of three performances of Super Indian, a radio series by Arigon Starr (Kickapoo, Creek). After eating tainted commodity cheese, a young Hubert Logan discovers he has amazing powers that transform him into “Super Indian.” With his trusty sidekick Mega Bear, Super Indian uses these newfound powers to foil evil on the Leaning Oak Reservation. Don’t miss an exciting evening of hilarity and superhero action as Super Indian and Mega Bear rocket to the rescue.

I would love to be there. Two productions by two of my fave people. You going to either show, Rob?

I'll try to see them, especially "Super Indian." But the Autry is on the other side of town--an hour's drive through traffic. Also, I have to work Saturdays on PECHANGA.net, so it may be difficult.

Okay, but shouldn't members of the press get in free so we can review the plays? ;-)

Hi Rob! Yes, if you're a reviewer we want you there and we'll give you your ticket! Contact Yadhira DeLeon at the Autry National Center (YDELEON@autrynationalcenter.org) and tell her who you are, who you write your reviews for (which publication) and what night you'd like to see the shows.
