The staging of Men on Boats is pretty obvious, right? Ten men, four boats, two rivers and a one-armed Civil War Veteran. It’s a classic tale of pioneers exploring the untamed West, men who would dare any adventure, with a script inspired by the actual logs of John Wesley Powell. Niki Moon plays Powell, with a crew played by Christina Moore, Jennifer Foreman, Monica LaVelle, Florence...Hey, these aren’t men! That’s right, in Jaclyn Backhaus’ clever hysterical historical pageant, it’s a cast of “not-men” (their words; also "taking the man out of manifest destiny") directed by Ellen Brooks, the production looks at the past through a contemporary lens, applying modern values in a way that leaves audiences laughing, thinking and on the edge of their seats.
