Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue
By Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed by Rebecca Greene Udden
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, which open 1 day apart in February. The final installment of the trilogy, The Happiest Song Plays Last, will have a staged reading at a location TBD during the first week of March.
