WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
On the 50th anniversary of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company and 30 years since his death, La MaMa celebrates the artistry of Charles Ludlam. A fully produced revival of Ludlam's early masterwork Conquest of the Universe or When Queens Collide, directed by Everett Quinton, is the centerpiece of the Ludlam celebration. Conquest is an epic collage inspired by Marlowe's Tamburlaine the Great that is as outrageous and timely today as when first performed in 1967.
