Yorgos Karamihos in Makriyannis Unplugged – March 26

February 16, 2022

LOS ANGELES – Celebrated director and actor Yorgos Karamihos pays tribute to General Yannis Makriyannis, the hero of the 1821 Greek Revolution, in Makriyannis Unplugged, a show that tells the story of a nation in revolt and an individual in the process of self-formation, on Saturday, March 26, 7 PM, at UCLA’s Ralph Freud Playhouse, 245 Charles E Young Drive East in Los Angeles.

Adapting selected passages of Makriyannis’ Memoirs, a seminal work of Modern Greek letters, Makriyannis Unplugged renders the Greek hero of the 19th century our contemporary, a figure rooted in a local tradition but with a global significance. The work by Karamihos offers a raw theatrical experience that resonates with Makriyannis’ spirit, challenging and enriching our understanding of freedom, community, duty, and creativity.

Following the performance in Los Angeles on March 26, Makriyannis Unplugged will be performed in Vancouver on April 3, 6 PM, and in Athens on April 14, 6:30 PM and 9 PM.

The UCLA performance is offered under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of Greece in the United States, and the Consulate General of Greece in Los Angeles.

Tickets for Makriyannis Unplugged are available through the UCLA Central Ticket Office online: https://bit.ly/3JpolcC and by phone: 310-825-2101.
