Two NYTW favorites, playwright Paul Rudnick and director Christopher Ashley (who memorably collaborated on The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told several seasons ago), team up for the premiere of Valhalla. Rudnick's truly hilarious new play intertwines the worlds of two young men, King Ludwig II, The Mad King of Bavaria, (most famous for dotting the Teutonic countryside with elaborate, ornate castles), and James Avery, a sexually precocious 1940's youth from Dainsville, Texas. Valhalla is an uproarious examination of passionate and highly strung individuals incapable of censoring their more hallucinatory urges.
