“The sun rises-and with it the whims of a totalitarian ruler. When Jeremias, a butler, enters the chamber of the world’s leader, the routine of servitude and power begins as it has every morning for time immemorial. A parchment holds all the instructions to be followed by the loyal Jeremias, but as the omnipotent ruler creates laws to suit his every wish, his once perfectly established throne is threatened.
What will the night that he hates bring? What happens when the servant sees the moon swallow the sun? What happens when the master cannot control the night shadows’ defeat over the day’s light?
Immersed in poetry and the absurd, “El Mandatario Idiota” paints a bleak yet comical picture of power and those who serve it–an intellectual exploration of philosophies that have transcended all historical eras.” (http://www.teatroiati.org/programs/detail/el_mandatario_idiota_the_idiot_ruler)

“WHEN you imagine a poetry reading, the scene that comes to mind probably doesn’t involve battalions of underwear-slinging admirers. Poetry is supposed to be dusty stuff, the reading of which can inspire even a hyperactive 4-year-old to go gentle into that good nap. And yet here is Dylan Thomas’s wife, Caitlin, describing her husband’s famous 1953 performances at the Poetry Center in New York, now part of the 92nd Street Y, “I used to come in late and hear, through the mikes, the breath-strained panting … booming blue thunder into the teenagers’ delighted bras and briefs.”
