Fresh from its Pulitzer Prize nomination, The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity is the comedic look into the world of professional wrestling but told through a thoughtful examination of race relations, geopolitics, and personal introspection. Unlike anything you’ve ever seen, one moment you’re awed by the spectacle, another you’re laughing uncontrollably and finally, you’re rethinking America’s place in the global landscape.
Casting for the production is a combination of returning Caldwell Theatre Company alumni along with extraordinarily talented newcomers. Brandon Morris, most recently seen with Caldwell Theatre Company in The Whipping Man, is cast as Macedonio Guerra (Mace) the story’s narrator. Donte Bonner, makes his Caldwell Theatre Company debut as the titular character Chad Deity. This will mark Gregg Weiner’s third production with Caldwell Theatre Company (Clybourne Park, Six Years) as he will be inhabiting the role of Everett K Olson (EKO). Finally, Adam Bashian will make his initial leap onto the Caldwell Theatre Company stage as Vigneshwar Paduar (VP), the Indian-American entrepreneur turned wrestler.
