The Da Vinci Code Receives a Much Needed Laugh
CHICAGO, IL—JULY, 2006— In the midst of The Da Vinci Code hysteria, a theatre group in Chicago has opted for the hysterical and put together what they deem to be “a much needed parody”.
Da Vinci Code 2: Electric Boogaloo is scheduled to open mid-August and run through mid-September in Chicago. This campy, witty and irreverent look at The Da Vinci Code pokes fun at The Da Vinci Code tale itself as well as those involved in creating and opposing both the book and the movie. Devout Christ followers, devout Da Vinci Code fans and those who know nothing about either will find it enjoyable, amusing and even a bit thought-provoking.
Matthew Moran, Founder and Artistic Director of Only a Stranger Productions, encouraged award-winning playwright John Cosper to write a parody on The Da Vinci Code in response to the overwhelming rhetoric being dished out by both Da Vinci Code fans and opponents, alike.
“It’s time to laugh about it,” said Matthew Moran. “Controversy, although stirring and powerful, can often leave us more hurt than helped and more confused than informed. Laughter and love, however, can break down barriers and bring healing. In Da Vinci Code 2: Electric Boogaloo we give people of every viewpoint an opportunity to join together for an evening of theatre where they can shake hands and laugh the night away. Even if you don’t know a thing about The Da Vinci Code you will still have a thoroughly enjoyable time!”
Only a Stranger Productions was founded as a way to broach important issues facing the religious world and provide a beacon of hope through entertaining and provocative Christian theatre.
