Main Street Theater presents Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue
Elliot Ortiz is a young soldier, like his Pop was before him, like his Abuelo before that. But despite the things they share - their love of music, their love for each other, and their experiences of war - even when they desperately need to communicate, they just can’t seem to make it work.
This powerful portrait of a Puerto Rican military family by Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony Award® nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights, Water by the Spoonful) is a breathtaking symphony of music, memories, and the things that mark our bodies … and our souls.
Houston audiences will have the rare opportunity to follow Hudes' Elliot Trilogy playing concurrently. Main Street's production of Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue, Part I of the Trilogy, and Stages Repertory Theatre’s production of Water by the Spoonful, Part II, open one day apart in February. Mildred’s Umbrella will produce a staged reading of the final installment of the trilogy, The Happiest Song Plays Last, during the first week of March 2020.
