AdvertisementThe real inspiration for 007 is revealed in this one-of-a-kind show.
What happens when a James Bond-obsessed Dominican boy in Queens (who won’t go anywhere without his nerf gun), finds out that the real James Bond was Dominican? Learning that Bond creator Ian Flemming drew upon the life and career of Porfirio Rubirosa—a Dominican diplomat, international polo champion, race-car driver, and pilot—to develop the classic 007 character, performer Christopher Rivas set out on a quest to learn everything about the man.
Join Chris as he digs deeper into the world of Bond, its inspiration, and what it meant to him growing up in Queens. Before Connery and Craig, there was Rubirosa. Don’t miss the Boston premiere of The Real James Bond…Was Dominican.
FOLLOW CHRIS'S STORY WITH YOUR OWN
After every performance of The Real James Bond... Was Dominican you are invited to participate in a story circle facilitated by Director Daniel Banks.
A story circle is a communal conversation with an audience about a piece of theater. It’s less about the performer/performance and more about the stories and memories that the show brings up from audience members’ own lives. What do you recognize in this piece of art? Approximate length: 45mins
