Written by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Everett Quinton
Presented in association with Howl Arts

On the 50th Anniversary of The Ridiculous Theatrical Company and 30 years since Ludlam's death, La MaMa celebrates the artistry of Charles Ludlam. A fully produced revival of Ludlam's early masterwork Conquest of the Universe or When Queens Collide directed by Everett Quinton is the centerpiece of the Ludlam celebration. Conquest is an epic collage inspired by Marlowe's Tamburlaine the Great that is as outrageous and timely today as when first performed in 1967.

In addition to Conquest, readings, panels, and other special events will be presented in association with Howl Arts.
