A site-specific interactive theater experience in West Hollywood’s Plummer Park, Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta celebrates, illuminates, and magnifies the life of Eugene Plummer, the original resident of West Hollywood. Told through a patchwork of tall-tales, large-scale puppets, masks, and music, Rogue Artists Ensemble electrifies Señor Plummer’s whimsical tales of early Los Angeles in a memory map of wild west duals, pirates, land-grabbing, shark-riding, epic court battles, and, of course, fiestas. Armed with only a treasure map of Señor Plummer’s mind, the adventures you’ll encounter are not always friendly, not always logical, but always exist in the vibrant, shifting ground for dreamers that is Los Angeles.
Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta commemorates the 75th anniversary of the publication of the book Señor Plummer: The Life and Laughter of an Old-Californian first published in 1942, which documents interviews with Eugene Plummer by John Preston Buschlen.
