  The Book Of Moron at Broadway Playhouse

The Book Of Moron

Broadway Playhouse
175 East Chestnut Street Chicago

Robert Dubac's newest Off-Broadway hit, THE BOOK OF MORON, has been described as one of the most "Hilarious" "Intelligent" and "Scorching" satirical attacks on idiocracy since Mark Twain. (And "idiocracy" isn't even a word. How dumb is that?) Having been brainwashed by a culture that worships Kardashians over character, delusion over truth and selfies over self-effacement; Dubac finds himself stuck in a coma of stupidity. His IQ has dropped to Q. In order to wake up he has to ask himself the big question. Who am I? What do I believe? What's the point? Okay, that's three questions but suffice to say, he has no answers. Just voices. Inner voices who come to life with precision and wit. One by one they pull him into a bizarre metaphysical universe of goofy critical thought in search of the bigger picture.

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"... It's a singular solo show: Creator of The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron, satirist Robert Dubac now delivers Book of Moron, an 85-minute riff on reality and all its threats. Delivering rapid-fire, hit-and-run observations about contemporary consciousness, this driven lecturer imagines himself coming out of the coma of everyday existence to embark on a treacherous pursuit of truth by process of elimination."

Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...Robert Dubac’s “The Book of Moron” is a snappy, contemplative observational comedy that pokes fun at the meaning of truth while asking eternal questions on the nature of the human condition. Filled with biting humor and acerbic wit, this 80-minute one-man routine is the farthest thing from moronic. Don’t be deceived by the title: the performance has absolutely nothing to do with “The Book of Mormon”, except for the similarity in the name. In fact, the only reference to its namesake takes place at the very beginning of the show when the “voice of reason” rebukes us to turn off our cell phones and tells us that if we are expecting “The Book of Mormon”, we are in the wrong theater."

"...I could go on, and on. But “Book of Moron” is meant to be performed, not described, and it can only get lost in translation. Go see it."

Picture This Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...The punches pulled in this show, to this Generation Z reviewer, are not necessarily the jokes that are adored by millennials or anyone younger. Topics like marriage, race, and political debate may strike a chord with older generations, perhaps, some of whom might be a good match for this show."
