If you could swap identities, would you rather be the 26th President of the United States or the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll? It’s a question The TEAM asks in RoosevElvis. On a hallucinatory road trip from the Badlands to Graceland, the spirits of Elvis Presley and Theodore Roosevelt battle over the soul of Ann, a painfully shy meat-processing plant worker, and what kind of man — or woman — Ann should become. Set against the boundless blue skies of the Great Plains and endless American highway, RoosevElvis is a playfully pointed new work about icons, gender, and nobodies and somebodies.http://ums.org/performance/roosevelvis/
