Comic-Con audience member
Corrales Arts Center presents Too Much Coffee Man Opera
An hour one-act Gonzo Opera. A zany, hilarious romantic tribute to the wonders of coffee bordering on the fantastical. Based on the comic character of Shannon Wheeler – music by Emmy-winner Daiel Steven Crafts
Shannon Wheeler’s comic book character runs amok on stage in Too Much Coffee Man Opera with music by Emmy-winning composer Daniel Steven Crafts.
It has played to sold-out audiences in Portland (twice), San Diego ComiCon, San Francisco (twice), Albuquerque (twice), Columbia Center for the Arts, the Abiquiu and Astoria Music Festivals, Lewis & Clark University and off-Broadway at the Theater Now New York festival. We are told it is the most frequently produced 21st century opera.
This is the first of a new genre called Gonzo Opera, using outrageous characters and situations you’d never find in traditional opera.
Too Much Coffee Man and his buddy Espresso Guy hang around the local coffee shop and wax prolific about life, love and the universe. Both are secretly in love with the barista who considers them both just annoyances. Finally, TMCM finds the courage to sing his Serenade to the barista, and the fun really begins!
Come early and have dinner and drinks or a special treat!! (Not included in ticket price!)
