Rundown promises to run over sacred cows

| 08/05/2014

(CNS): The Cayman National Cultural Foundation’s annual review of the comical side of life in the Cayman Islands will open on 23 May. The much anticipated annual Rundown show which has been running since 1991 has developed a reputation for the funniest and most entertaining show in Cayman where nothing is sacred. With a mix of old and new faces and characters, Henry Mutoo the director and CNCF chair is promising a bag of laughs for the price of the ticket. The dump and the national flag carrier as well as local politicians and characters are all fair game in the review which runs over any sacred cows that get in the way of gags.

Mutoo said audiences can expect the same high quality, hilarious show, touching on some of the 'issues' in the Cayman atmosphere. “Rundown is a comedy. What we try to do is find the funny angles to our lives and take them to an almost farcical level,” he said promising a few surprises.
“Many people who have seen Rundown over the years often ask, "Is so and so going to be in it this year?" Mutto said as he pointed to this year’s cast of regulars as well as some new faces.

“The usual "Rundown clowns" – Leroy Holness, Rita Estevanovich, Priscilla Pouchie and the relatively new "Rundown jokers" – Matt Brown and Kevin Creary. All of these actors are very talented and many of them are quite experienced so, we are looking forward to giving our audiences aterrific and funny show.”

Muttoo said audiences should also look out for Dexter Bodden, 'The Calypso Cowboy', who will make his Rundown debut this year along with Jevaughnie Ebanks, Leslieanne Bernard, Fiona Pimentel, Evana Medina, Patrick Lopez, Maia Muttoo, Carla Court and Ned Miller III.
“As a matter of fact, all kinds of actors are coming out of the woodwork or the bushes this year,” Mutoo added.

The show opens on 23 May with performances every Thursdays to Saturday starting at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm until 1 June Tickets are $25 or $15 for kids and seniors.

    Run Down like Cayman has allowed its self to run way down. We must now consider what to leave in and what to take out…. that's cultural diversity  fa ya.  Well I preferred the old Run Down, like when Mr. Martin composed and played his songs but times have changed and with that the show must go on.

    Isn't the headline culturally insenstive and offensive?  I find it so.

    I think Rundown was way better when I was younger. I didn't go last year, but I went the two years before that and i thought it was alright. Not really worth the ticket price though. My kids went with their school to the Rundown last year and they weren't overly impressed either. Hopefully they step up their game this year; I might actually go.

    I admire Mr. Mutoo's passion for the Arts. He is dedicated and a true gentleman.

      I disagree. The last Rundown I went to I found not only to be overtly racist, but in extremely poor taste in poking fun at the alcohol problems of Quincy and Consuelo

        Thats kind of the whole point – Rundown is here to poke fun at the politicians and other people who are in the limelight on our island for some reason or another.

    Three cheers for Rundown.

     

    I left Cayman several years ago and still miss Rundown as it is one of the few entertainments that really got me going with good hearty belly laughs.

     

    Well done to Mr. Mutoo and his talented team.
