Heritage Blues Orchestra Quintet
Presented by: Performing Arts Fort Worth
Performance to be held at McDavid Studio
Dates / Times:
Friday, 05/22/2015 7:30 PM
Information:  
The grit of low-down country and urban blues with the bold brass of New Orleans; the hand-clapping fervor of gospel punctuated with fiery postmodern, jazz-infused horn arrangements; the haunting cries of work songs and pulsating drums that reach back to the real roots of it all.

You'll journey across the Middle Passage, be driven down Highway 49 from Clarksdale to New Orleans, go from chain gangs and juke joints to orchestra pits, church pews and even back porches. The music created by New York's Heritage Blues Orchestra is an inspiring testament to the enduring power, possibilities and boundless beauty of African-American music.

"Hilarious" is the only way to describe THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? You will laugh non-stop for 90 minutes as Robert Dubac ransacks his brain to answer the age old question: "What do women want?" All while drinking a beer.

Dubac has crafted an hysterical one-man multi-character show that tackles the babble of the sexes with precision and wit. With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, Robert Dubac seamlessly transforms himself into five alter egos - each offering their own brand of misguided advice on how to straddle the gender gap.

Hailed by critics and audiences alike, THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is a rare thing - a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative and insightful all at once.

There are two types of people who should rush and see it - men and women!
