Maria Clubfoot. Last of the great American Indian ballerinas: Larkin, Tallchief (Maria and Marjorie), Clubfoot. Maria, pride of the Luni Tribe, blazed a path with her literal interpretation of Slaughter on 10th Avenue, set in the club at Mohegan Sun. Maria appears with the Trockadero under special permission from federal authorities.
Tino Xirau-Lopez, a well-known figure to Off-Off-Off audiences, returns to the Trockadero flushed from last season’s Nutcracker, in which he played the fiendishly difficult role of the Father. His numerous theatrical successes have not prevented his stern, aristocratic family from disavowing any claims he might make to title.
