                        Sideshow Theatre presents THE GOLDEN DRAGON.

In 2012, Sideshow produced their Jeff Award-winning Idomeneus.  That innovative, critically-acclaimed play was written by Roland Schimmelpfenning. In The Golden Dragon, Sideshow produces another of Schimmelpfenning’s work.  This one is centered in a restaurant.  The five member ensemble, Matt FletcherDavid Lawrence Hamilton,Daria HarperDeanna Myers and Noah Sullivan, are the kitchen help.  They also play the wait staff, customers and neighbors. Under the direction of Jonathan L. Green andMarti Lyons, the ensemble morph into nearly twenty different characters.  They effectively transition between cultures, ages, and genders.
