In a fast-paced 90-minute performance, The Complete History of America (abridged) gives audiences an extreme CliffsNotes-style version of U.S. history. It takes characters whom we all know — or should, anyway — and humorously marks their place in the textbooks. George Washington, Daniel Boone, Uncle Sam and the Statue of Liberty are just some of the many represented in this show, taken on by Stephen Seay Production at UpStage in NoDa. Starring Tania Kelly, Christopher Jones, Chris Herring, Robert Brafford, Jay Russell and Stephen Seay, we get a satirical and very condensed view of America’s past. For history buffs and those who snoozed their way through history class alike. (Anita Overcash)
