"An Enola Gay Christmas" by Doug Field at Altered Stages from 4 Dec 2003
Thu 6 Nov 2003 "An Enola Gay Christmas" by Doug Field at Altered Stages from 4 Dec 2003 An Enola Gay Christmas by Doug Field opens at Altered Stages (212 W. 29th St) from 4 to 28 Dec 2004. This comedy is directed by Dana Snyder, and the cast includes Nan Schmid In a brisk hour-long television Christmas Special format, Enola Gay Tibbets, the mother of the pilot of the infamous bomber who named his plane after her, is trying to clear her name. What better way than a feel-good Christmas show broadcast from the downstairs of her suburban Miami, Florida home. The show features her singing a little, cooking a little, decorating a little and doing a little cocaine. She also has some very special guests--as well as one surprise guest! The play is full of history--both factual and fictional--the basics are fact--and then the fantasy begins. Two actresses play four parts--one actress plays Enola Gay--and the other actress plays Shinto San, Beverlina Sanchez and the surprise guest. An off stage elf provides appropriate and inappropriate theme music.
