VALPARAISO, NOW ON STAGE AT CONVERGENCE-CONTINUUM IS AN
“intriguing and intellectually challenging play” with “a first-rate cast and production.” It’s “edgy, provocative theater that made me laugh and think apace.” –Fran Heller, Cleveland Jewish News.

What’s up with our freaky obsession with people who do stupid, outrageous or awful things, and turning them into media sensations? That’s what we’re taking a searingly comic and wickedly dark look at with VALPARAISO by Don DeLillo, now on stage at convergence-continuum.
Michael Majeski boards a plane on a routine business trip to Valparaiso,
Indiana, but through a succession of blunders ends up in Valparaiso,
Chile. In a series of intense and often surreal press, radio and TV news
interviews, he tries to establish an identity as he moves from being a
humorous media curiosity to a national media celebrity, until he reaches
the big-time: the tell-all daytime talk show! Here nothing remains
unseen, and personal secrets, no matter how intimate, are fair game.
Valparaiso runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm through Apr. 16 at the Liminis, 2438 Scranton Rd., Cleveland, OH 44113 in the historic Tremont neighborhood. Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors (65+) and $10 for students.
