The Nature Theatre of Oklahoma, which was responsible for the Obie-winning staging of No Dice at Soho Rep in 2008, returns with a new solo work conceived and directed by Nature Theatre founders Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper. Rambo Solo opens Off-Broadway March 21 and will continue through April 12. Rambo Solo is built upon actor Zachary Oberzan's deep-seated obsession with "Rambo: First Blood." According to press notes, "[Oberzan] first saw the Hollywood blockbuster during one magical weekend spent watching free HBO. He knows the story by heart - but can he navigate all the perilous twists and turns of his own obsession with it? Set in the dark heart of Zack's tiny New York studio apartment, Rambo Solo follows one man's private passion to its limits, as he struggles to re-enact the entire First Blood story in all its sweaty dramatic detail."
The work arrives in New York following engagements in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Rambo Solo has production and video design by Peter Nigrini.
