A man in a prison jumpsuit and Trump hat weeps for incarcerated insurrectionists in a baffling immersive theatrical performance at CPAC.
Move over, Hamilton! The hottest theatrical political history re-imagining is taking place at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas this weekend. The show? An immersive experience centered around a broad-shouldered man in a MAGA hat weeping in a jail cell. He wears an orange jumpsuit and sits in front of a chalkboard that reads “WHERE IS EVERYONE?” His alleged crime? Loving freedom too much.
Attendees at the annual conference were greeted with this unusual performance art on the floor of the Dallas Hilton Anatole. Journalist Laura Jedeed captured video of the whole situation and tweeted that she “receive[d] a silent disco headset that plays harrowing testimony from people arrested for participating in [the January 6 insurrection].” She noted in a follow up tweet that the “guy NEVER broke character” and cried for half an hour straight.
