The Bóogravîan Opéra Naçionale is Presenting to All Peoples Very Nice Spectacle: WAKE UP! From Ample Generosity of Glorious Leader #1, Vladimir “The Thunderer” Boograviboat

The Bóogravîan Opéra Naçionale comes to Telluride to present their most famous and glorious epic, Wake Up! Unfortunately, this troupe of “actors” is sub par at best. Not only have they never performed this play before, but it’s likely they’ve never even SEEN a play before. Bóogravîa is a sad little country, wedged just between Bumblefuggria and East Jesustan. Their national sport is Donkey Ball, and their traditional delicacy is cat meat. No one’s English is very good, but that’s no surprise considering they learned it from watching a certain 90’s horror flick. This brand new clown show is full of hilariously bad acting, some atrocious singing, some very inept dancing, and definitely lots of tears.
