Octoroon

Didn't see it.

A friend of mine did though. His description was, to say the least, memorable. Eye-popping.

He also said the theater was packed, so I guess controversy counts for something, eh?

Update: What is super-theatrical? Like theatricality that can fly? Or can turn invisible?

Maybe super-theatrical means it has a secret identity. When the curtain drops it becomes a high school production of "Our Town".

Super-theatricality could be theater or a performance that is living and breathing in a way that cannot merely be summed up in the term “live.” Something that is highly stylized and yet strikes us as more real and honest than reality itself.
