Theatre Performance: "House of Blue Leaves" | Wis.Community


University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Events

Directed by Dr. Jennifer Chapman
Artie Shaugnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory. Toiling by
day as a zookeeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his
wares at piano bars in Queens, New York, where he lives with his wife,
Bananas, much to the chagrin of Artie’s downstairs mistress, Bunny
Flingus, who’ll sleep with him anytime but refuses to cook until they
are married. On the day the Pope is making his first visit to the city,
Artie’s son Ronny goes AWOL from Fort Dix, stowing a homemade bomb
intended to blow up the Pope in Yankee Stadium. Also arriving are
Artie’s old school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, Billy
Einhorn, with starlet girlfriend in tow, who holds the key to Artie’s
dreams of getting out of Queens and away from the life he so despises.
But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of
ordinary lives.This is a ticketed event. Purchase tickets at the event window or online at
