The Top Ten of 2009 lists have begun:
Kristoffer Diaz’s did three things: One, it explained professional wresting to me. Two, it made professional wrestling interesting enough to snobs like me. Three, it used wrestling as a metaphor for racial issues in America. And not just black and white, but the whole spectrum. The production also featured a terrific cast that actually had to have wrestling matches during the performance. Desmin Borges was also incredibly lively and entertaining as Macedonio Guerra, the play’s narrator.
I’m hoping we’ll have more of these.
