CYRANO A-GO-GO at Nanaimo Fringe

"The whole of the piece is well-organized, jumping from past to present, from fiction to fact, between [Brad's] life and Cyrano’s with great aplomb. There’s never a dull moment, and the experience will not only augment your appreciation for Rostand’s masterpiece, but the theater and arts in general." 

 ~ Kris Noteboom,

My solo show CYRANO A-GO-GO gets an engagement in Canada this August under the Minion Productions banner. At the 2015 Nanaimo Fringe Fest.

Playing at the Harbour City Theatre, 
Lower Stage, 
25 Victoria Road, 
Nanaimo, British Colombia V9R 4N9. 

From the official press release:

CYRANO A-GO-GO is semi-autobiographical exploration of one restless theatre artist's fascination with the 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. A chance encounter with the script at a suburban public library as a teenager leads to a cruel and wonderful calling. Mixing the personal, historical and literary into a journey through Rostand's play and a meditation on the differences between art and life, McEntire puts a funny, warm, insightful spin on the usual coming-of-age one-man show.

Brad McEntire is the founding Artistic Director of the small Dallas,Texas-based theatre collective Audacity Theatre Lab. He is the creator of several solo pieces including ROBERT’S ETERNAL GOLDFISH (Out of the Loop Fringe Festival, Scranton Fringe Fest) as well as his extensively traveled piece CHOP (New York International Fringe, New Orleans Fringe, Seattle Fringe, Houston Fringe, etc.)

McEntire began development on CYRANO A-GO-GO in 2011. After an initial co-production with the Dallas Shakespeare Festival he took the piece to the Houston Fringe Fest in 2012 and then presented it at the 2015 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival in Addison, Texas where it garnered a “Best of Fest” Award.

CYRANO A-GO-GO plays August 13 thru 23 as part of the 2015 Nanaimo Fringe Festival. Produced under the banner of Minion Productions. All shows at the Harbour City Theatre, Lower Stage, 25 Victoria Road, Nanaimo, BC V9R 4N9.
