Production history[edit]

The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity had its world premier at Chicago's Biograph Theater on September 25, 2009 in a Victory Gardens Theater production starring Desmin Borges, Kamal Angelo Bolden, Usman Ally, Jim Krag, and Christian Litke. Designed by Brian Sidney Bembridge (scenery), Jesse Klug (lights), John Boesche (projections), and Christine Pasquale (costumes)[1] Other productions include Philadelphia's InterAct Theatre Company (October 2009),[2] the Mixed Blood Theatre in Minneapolis (April 2010),[3] New York's Second Stage Theatre (May 2010),[4] the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles (September 2011),[5] Actors Theater of Louisville (January 2012),[6] the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC (September 2012),[7] the Dallas Theater Center (October 2012),[8] Charlotte's Carolina Actors Studio Theatre (April 2013).,[9] and Sacramento's Capital Stage (July 2013).[10]


The New York Times said the production at the Off Broadway Second Stage Theatre "has the delicious crackle and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire."[4] The New York Daily News called the same production, "flashy, fleshy and ridiculously entertaining".[11] The Los Angeles Times said the play "leaps out of the proscenium frame at every opportunity, exhorting, drop-kicking and body-slamming its way into an immediacy that is more familiar to sporting events and rap concerts than to a traditional night of theater."[5]
