WHY “TREMENDO?”

We began producing our own plays in 1996
under the aegis of our theater company,
Doctor Emile’s Theatre Tremendo.
The “Doctor Emile” part was an homage to DC’s father.
“Tremendo” in Italian, when spoken of a person,
means “unbearable,” “too much.”
We thought that fit us just perfectly.
