Why See Promenade?
Down the Rabbit Hole
Dubbed by The New York Times as "a mixture of 'Candide' and Samuel Beckett viewed through Lewis Carroll's looking glass", Promenade is the most experimental revivals of this season's Off-Center season. It focuses on two unnamed prisoners who escape from jail into an evil world, where they encounter all kinds of allegorical figures and tales. Al Carmines' score draws from Puccini and Gilbert and Sullivan, an eclectic soundtrack Mara Irene Fornes boundary-pushing book. Guaranteed to confound (in all the best possible ways), this show is a unique treat in a landscape dominated by jukebox musicals.
Promenade was first seen Off-Broadway in 1969, with a cast that included Tony nominee Madeline Khan, and was revived again 1983.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
