US Premiere!

Using soulful stories, macho choreography and original music, the internationally acclaimed Wardrobe Ensemble present their take on the Chilean miner crisis of 2010. A tale of friendship, hope and Elvis Presley, 33 follows the story of the men trapped half a mile under ground, the journalists in the desert above them and the world that watched and waited for their rescue for 69 days. 33 takes you beyond the newsrooms, past the cameras and leaves you 2000 feet under the ground in this outlandish, touching and funny modern-legend of men on the brink of death, fame and madness.
