Four Wal-Mart employees gather to discuss their mutual affection for Celine Dion, but as the performance and story unfolds, reality bends in a way no one might have expected. Bliss asks us to consider what is truly spectacular and how the spectacle separates us not only from the target of our fascination, but also from ourselves.
Run time: 75 minutes, no intermission.
Free admission. First come, first served.
