KITH2K director's new show
3/30/00 by Tay-vee
Crow's Theatre in association with the du Maurier Ltd. World Stage Present the 15th Anniversary production of Jim Milan's DALI Fifteen years after its world premiere, the surrealist spectacle DALI remains as controversial and intriguing as the artist himself does. Written and directed by Crow's Theatre Artistic Director Jim Millan, the award-winning DALI is a landscape of the past century as seen through the eyes and paintbrush of the outrageous and intellectual artist. DALI is an evening with Salvador Dali, the surrealist master painter, showman and pop star. Performed by the man himself, Dali stages his own biography as viewed through the fun house mirrors of his mind! First presented in 1985 starring Guillermo Verdecchia as Salvador Dali and remounted in 1986 starring Tom McCamus, this anniversary production of DALI will feature a young and exciting cast including Normand Bissonnette, Richard Clarkin (as Dali), Fiona Highet, Conor Green, Genevieve Langlois and Selina Martin.

Dali on Dali: too surreal by half

Back in 1985, the show quickly established his two-year-old company, Crow's Theatre, as a comer. Guillermo Verdecchia played the man with the mustaches and a revival a year later featured Tom McCamus in the role, so Dali has serious credentials as a nurturer of future talents.
