What qualifies as celebrity in the United States in the year 2014? What are we willing to subject ourselves to in order to achieve the slightest modicum of fame? What torments are we willing to heap on our fellow man for our own entertainment? Are we Rome? This world premiere of a new comedy by Mihkel Raud, an Estonian recording artist, music critic, and one of the judges of Estonia’s “American Idol” franchise, “Eesti otsib superstaari” (Estonia is Searching for a Superstar) employs an aggressive visual style including live TV feeds. American Monkey asks serious questions through hilarity and mayhem about our modern version of Rome’s Colosseum – reality TV.
