China: The Whole Enchilada

DC Arts Center
2438 18th Street NW Washington

The Landless Theatre Company presents the DC premiere of Mark Brown's China: The Whole Enchilada. This wildly irreverent and funny show, which was named Outstanding Musical at 2009's Fringe NYC, features three Caucasian men singing, dancing, and irreverently marching their way through four thousand years of Chinese history. China: The Whole Enchilada explores such topics as racism, human rights, genocide, and the fortune cookie. The team behind the show was responsible for Landless' hit Gutenberg! The Musical!

Washington Post - Not Recommended

"...All the tea on the Asian continent wouldn’t do much to perk up “China: The Whole Enchilada,” the Landless Theatre Company’s latest foray into musical irreverence. This 90-minute song- and-joke-fest, written by Mark Brown and performed by three Caucasian men, labors mightily to spoof both 4,000 or so years of Chinese history and American ignorance of same. But the flamboyantly politically incorrect gags are so sophomoric and the performances so slapdash that the humor proves a weak brew indeed."

As paper-thin and disposable as a one-sentence fortune and about as filling as the cookie it came in, Mark Brown and Paul Mirkovitch’s musical pseudo-homage to China is getting a silly, sporadically successful production at DCAC in Adams Morgan, thanks to the eager and disheveled efforts of Landless Artistic Director Andrew Lloyd Baughman, his brother Matt Baughman, and relative newcomer Ben Demers.
