The House of Blue Leaves is a zany comedy centered on the day the Pope made his visit to New York City in 1965. The play's author, John Guare, uses his characters to accentuate the elusive search for fame, and also begs the question:  What is normal? Every wonderfully wacky character is searching for that ambiguous something that fame represents. They make us question:  Which of these characters are really normal? But, what is normal?  In today's world of reality television, creating fame out of normal people makes The House of Blue Leaves more relevant now than ever before.
