The three actors in The Complete History of America (abridged) hilariously perform 600 years of history in just 90 minutes. This rollercoaster ride of a show tackles George Washington, Watergate, Baghdad, the New World, the discovery of America, and every topic in between using its own unique and hilariously quirky brand of humor. It answers the most complicated of questions that American History has presented us with, such as “Shouldn’t we call it Amerigo?” and “Why didn’t they also create a Bill of Wrongs?”
Arts After Hours’ presentation of Complete History of America (abridged) is directed by James Tallach, who has appeared in AAH’s productions as Mother Superior in Nunsense AMen!, Jake in Evil Dead: The Musical, and Antonio in Much Ado About Nothing. “AAH’s dedication of bringing the arts to Lynn is extraordinary and I wanted to continue being part of it in a more creative way,” says Tallach. “When the chance to direct Complete History came along, I jumped at it and found three incredibly talented actors to tackle this smart funny and challenging piece.”
All AAH veterans, Cameron Gosselin (Twelfth Night), Casey Tucker (Henry V), and Dan Prior (Cannibal, the Musical) will stitch together American history like you’ve never seen it before. “That this caliber of people producing and performing at AAH are more than happy to come back time and time again says a lot, not only their dedication to the arts, but also to the quality work that AAH produces in Lynn,” Tallach adds.
“We are very excited about The Complete History of America (abridged),” says Thomas Martin, AAH’s Artistic Director. “Our audiences have come to expect an irreverent and wacky good time with our spring show. After last year’s smash hit Avenue Q, we wanted to find something fastpaced, funny, and at times, educational.”
