Brooklyn-based but celebrated all over the globe, the TEAM theater troupe analyzes what it means to live in America in 2016. Their latest play, RoosevElvis, follows the ghosts of Elvis and Teddy Roosevelt on a cross-country trip through America’s heartland as they fight over the spirit of Ann, a painfully shy factory worker. Using iconic figures to tackle topics like gender identity and masculinity, the show keeps a close eye on what it means to be an American — an important topic to consider now and always.
