After the huge success of Yerma and Oleanna, Director Deborah Merola and Namrataa Shrestha are back together with their another Theatre Play. This famous American drama explores the conflict between art and fame, following the story of a talented young violinist turned brutal boxer, with his tough yet ethereal girlfriend Lorna Moon. The story takes place in New York City in 1937, split between the aggressive, hostile man’s world of boxing, and a gentler world that still remembers family, music, and tender love. This production of Golden Boy creates a 1930’s-era period atmosphere through the costumes, music, and minimalist set design, delicately blending in a stylized aura of film noir mystique which contrasts starkly to the brash and brutal reality of boxing. Specially featured in the production are several of Kathmandu’s top boxers who bring live, true boxing to the production. These star athletes and other boxers of Kathmandu also have the special opportunity to receive lessons and workshops from boxing Hall of Fame fighter Yaqui Lopez, of the Fat City boxing club in Stockton, California. Mr. Lopez joins One World Theatre and Highly High Entertainment as a boxing specialist for this unique collaboration.
