Fwd: See TARTUFFE in Boston Oct. 25

Dell'Arte Company presents TARTUFFE at Emerson College in Boston, Saturday, Oct. 25 at 8pm

"Staged by Perrone as a cornucopia of physical gags and played to hilarious perfection"
- Rob Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

Cutler Majestic Theatre, Emerson College, Boston
8pm, Tickets $45

Boisterous characters, lavish comedy and the trademark physicality of the Dell'Arte ensemble combine with the finely crafted satire of Moliere for an evening of masks, music and laughter.
In Tartuffe, a religious charlatan takes over a family's life until the tables are turned by virtue of his own excesses. One of Moliere's most acclaimed plays, this work has a clear contemporary resonance for our times in a visually spectacular production the whole family will enjoy.

Visit the Cutler Majestic Theatre website for more information and to buy tickets.
You can also call 1-800-233-3123 for tickets.
The Culter Majestic Theatre is located at Emerson College in the Heart of Boston's Historic Theatre District, 219 Tremont Street.

SHOW: Providence, RI: Credo Theatre Oct 4.

Part of the Firstworks festival, two Bulgarian clowns use puppetry and magic to create a fantastic show.

It's supposed to be great (although I haven't seen it) 

It's in Providence, RI on Saturday, October 4, 8pm

RISD Auditorium

Credo Theatre,
Daddy's Always Right


Consummate theatrical clowns transform a bare stage into a winter fairyland complete with drifts of dazzling snow in a moving story for adults which remind us of the true value of simple things. With stunning puppet techniques and a little bit of magic, Nina Dimitrova and Vassil Vassilev-Zuek created this performance for the worldwide celebration of the 200th anniversary of Hans Christian Anderson's birth. Credo performances have toured the globe, including the London stage of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Appropriate for adults and families – ages 10 and up. Waterfire traffic and parking advisory for Saturday, Oct. 4: Please allow extra time.

Evening JumpStart pre-show performance, 7:15pm
