Vera of Las Vegas
This is a libretto, with music by the distinguished composer Daron Aric Hagen. It has an unlikely setting--Las Vegas, its airport and casinos--and a more unlikely cast of characters: the chorus of flight attendants, two shady characters named Trench and Trilby, an undercover INS agent named Doll, a shady pair of on-the-lam IRA volunteers, now illegal aliens, Taco Bell and Dumdum Devlin and, of course, Vera, an African-American transvestite lap dancer. This is a surreal, anguished meditation on alienation and the death of love.
