Event description

Description

The story of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of 17 WOMEN.

"Elvis Presley is the subject of interest, but the scenes are about the impact of the lives and the culture he affected, and how society deals with celebrity.... Arousing characters that are distinct and vividly brought to life by humor and emotional revelations... A play that affects the senses – heart, mind, and soul. One doesn’t have to be an Elvis fan going in, to walk away with a deep appreciation for ‘The King’ at the conclusion" - DC Metro Theater Arts

Some enthralled. Some appalled. All obsessed. From Tupelo, Mississippi where 11-year-old Elvis wanted a BB gun instead of a guitar, to The Steve Allen Show, from President Richard Nixon's office, to Andy Warhol's studio, from Cadillac salesmen, to Graceland guards, this is a touching, bring-the-family comedy with a heart that captures the effects that fame, generosity, and just being a nice guy can bring to others.

Showtimes:
Friday and Saturday nights at 7:00 pm on November 10, 11, 17, 18
Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm on November 12 and 19

The stories told in this sweeping work include:
- A salesperson's experience when Elvis and his Mother come in to buy Elvis' 11th birthday gift, his 1st guitar.
- The final check, demands, and argument at the Steve Allen show by a NBC censor, Steve Allen's secretary, and Elvis' messenger about hound dogs and pelvic movement.
- A women who runs into Elvis in a supermarket at 3 am and how it changes her life.
- 3 secretaries at the White House gushing out of their minds over a new visitor at the gate who comes to visit Pres Richard Nixon.
- Andy Warhol's assistants planning the angle of the invite to Andy's new Pop Art Elvis exhibition.
- 2 Saleswomen dueling over who will or will not sell Elvis the next Cadillac.
- A security guard inside Graceland divulging on the kindness and charity of Elvis Presley.
- A young woman, who has quit the Graceland souvenir shop, and her obsessed boyfriend contemplating souvenirs, Elvis, and life.

Transitions between scenes are anchored by recorded radio addresses that reinforce the
appropriate historical flavor accompanying the life, times, and legacy of Elvis Presley beyond just his music.
