In typical Richard Maxwell style, JOE is a unique event that features deadpan delivery and a hearty dose of live music.  A tale of one man’s life-long journey, we get to know Joe through the persistent details that follow him through life.

 

We meet Joe at six stages of life.  A stream of five actors of increasing age, and one “special guest” who portrays a Joe of the future, appear in black sneakers and familiar clothes, and sing and speak the pertinent details of one man’s life.

 

My best advice about JOE --- If you like Richard Maxwell, I think you will have a great time.
