Following is a synopsis of Robert Dubac’s one-man show “The Book of Moron: If thinking was easy, everyone would do it.” I’d never heard of it before spying a notice about it in the Times-Call “Arts & Entertainment” section. The title hooked me (as good titles will), and based on that alone, we decided to go see it. We have tickets for the matinee at 2:30, Sunday, March 23rd. We thought you might be interested too.
If you are interested in joining us, there is ticket information included below. You’ll need to purchase your own ticket, and I don’t know if we’d be able to sit together, although there is no reserved seating, but two people could ride with us and we could reconvene after the performance for dinner in Denver. If you want to go simply get your tickets and then RSVP to this event.

Robert Dubac's THE BOOK OF MORON makes its appearance at the Avenue Theater for a limited engagement beginning March 7th through March 23rd. Tickets priced at $23.50 Students/Seniors and $26.50 Adult are on sale now by phone at [masked] or through http://www.avenuetheater.com or at the theatre box office which opens at 417 E 17th Ave. Denver, CO[masked]:00pm - 5:00pm Tuesday through Saturday and 1 hour before show time.
In THE BOOK OF MORON Dubac portrays, ROBERT, an everyman who has lost sight of the bigger picture. He's been bombarded by so much information, white noise and hype and spin he can't remember who he is or what he believes in. Does he have a purpose? Can he think for himself? Is the truth in the details or in the pudding? He hasn't a clue. He racks his brain searching for answers. Instead he finds voices. Inner voices who pull him into a hysterical parallel universe in search of the bigger picture. It's a head trip - on a banana peel.
First his VOICE OF REASON convinces him to think outside the box but not without a fight from his INNER IDIOT. Then his COMMON SENSE teaches him critical thought so he can think for himself instead of relying on the Media. Next his INNER CHILD shows him how to use just enough innocence to question authority without getting spanked. Then his INNER ASSHOLE urges him to use both four syllable and four letter words to battle censorship.
Along the way he finds his SCRUPLES who encourage him to open The Door of Truth. But when it hits him in the head he realizes the ultimate paradox - the truth hurts and is funny at the same time.
Before it's over his VOICE OF REASON returns to solve partisan politics with an idea so absurd it borders on brilliance. And his COMMON SENSE levies a Stupid Tax on ignorance while scolding religion for taking the "fun" out of fundamentalism.
It's all for one and one for all as ROBERT'S inner voices take him on a freight train of provocative thought to find the bigger picture and wake up from the coma of modern day life.
Robert Dubac belongs to that rare breed of monologists; using words, characters and humor to create a show that is hard to categorize but effortless to enjoy.
If you like your satire served up with a clever intelligent edge; if you want to hear a voice that speaks as though it originated from inside of your own frustrated head; if you are tired of adolescent comedy generated by the mediocrity of television; don't miss Robert Dubac's THE BOOK OF MORON! If thinking was easy, everyone would do it.
Ticket prices are $26.50 for adults, $23.50 for students and seniors.
