    "Just Call Me God: A Dictator's Final Speech" | Starring John Malkovich

    When: Saturday, 2/1/2020 7:00 PM Export event

    Where: Albert and Janet Schultz Cultural Arts Hall (Bldg F)

    OFJCC Palo Alto

    John Malkovich defies heaven and earth in a one-man journey to the point where power corrupts absolutely. A dictator teeters on the brink, and megalomania escalates into full-blown madness. John Malkovich stands against the sound of the mighty organ in this astonishing music-drama: an exploration of tyranny in the raw by an actor of unparalleled conviction.

    From Nero to Idi Amin, despots have had megalomaniac delusions of divine provenance. Michael Sturminger's music-theatre piece pits Malkovich against the grandiloquent power of the organ. Organist Martin Haselböck responds with music by Bach, Wagner and Liszt: words against music, genius versus delusion, and at its terrifying heart, an actor who spares no one—least of all himself.

    "… a showcase for the hubris, confiding intimacy and skewed method-acting which has ensured Malkovich's inimitable presence on stage and screen." ~Richard Whitehouse, Independent

    "The surprising element of 'Just Call Me God' is the number of scenarios normally associated with high tension, if not terror, that become laugh-out-loud moments." ~Mersa Auda, The UPcoming

    "'Just Call Me God' is a spirited musical-theater piece full of dark humor. The play is a must see for people interested in modern theater and for fans of Malkovich." ~Diana Ringo, Indie Cinema
