Catawba College theater club to perform bold, steamy play

Catawba College’s steamy and bold production of “References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot” opens at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6 and runs through Feb. 9 at Florence Busby Corriher Theatre.
Catawba’s Blue Masque, the largest and oldest student club on campus, takes theatre-goers to a new world of magical realism during the course of this comedy drama.
The stage is set: Barstow, California, at night. The moon plays the piano, something lush and sentimental, as a coyote seduces a house cat. The moon whispers night poetry and sings entrancing boleros to Gabriela, who is sick with a broken heart.
She spends her nights pacing her backyard, deeply missing her husband, a soldier away at war. The 14-year-old boy next door, Martin, fumbles over, trying to entrance Gabriela, but she is busy staring up at the stars.
The play both begins and ends with this surrealist dreamscape centered around Gabriela.
When Gabriela’s husband Benito returns home, the mood shifts and the audience gets a close look at Gabriela’s struggle with her husband.
The play becomes a domestic drama as lovers try to understand each other and ponder if one can ever really solve the mystery of another’s heart.
“References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot” is directed by senior Sydney Berk of Encino, Calif. Catawba Theatre Arts Professor Dayna A. Anderson serves as Blue Masque advisor for the production.
Audiences should be forewarned, the production contains strong language, sexual content and adult situations.
Tickets are $5 for general admission and $4 for students and senior citizens. Group discounts are available.
Purchased tickets online at www.catawba.edu/theatretix or at the box office on the nights of the performance.
