Isabella Rossellini's Link Link Circus
JAN 25 & 26, 2019 / 7:30PM (JAN 25 show included in Friday package. JAN 26 show included in Saturday package)
Co-Directed by Guido Torlonia
Link Link Circus is at once comic and scientifically informed, arguing Darwin’s theory of evolution which links us humans to animals. The show is illustrated with legendary Isabella Rossellini’s short comic films, home movies and animation. She transforms herself into philosophers of the past like Aristotle, René Descartes and a medieval theologian while her dog Pan plays various animals, assisted by puppeteer and animal handler Schuyler Beeman.

APR 5 & 6, 2019 / 7:30PM (APR 5 show included in Friday package. APR 6 show included in Saturday package)
Written and Directed by Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor
In this “tale told by idiots,” The Reduced Shakespeare Company weaves all of The Bard’s famous characters, greatest lines and magnificent speeches into a brand new Shakespearean smorgasbord. William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged) is a comic misadventure that will feel strangely familiar yet excitingly new.
Contains occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
Manual Cinema’s Mementos MoriAPR 12 & 13, 2019 / 7:30PM (APR 12 show included in Friday package. APR 13 show included in Saturday package)
Mementos Mori is a dynamic, beguiling meditation on death and dying. In Manual Cinema’s most ambitious show to date, a cast of six puppeteers use hundreds of paper puppets, seven overhead projectors, two cameras and three screens to create a live “movie” in front of the audience. Accompanied by four musicians and live sound effects, the result is a rich mosaic of cinematic storytelling, all performed live with puppets.
Theatre at The Broad Stage made possible in part by generous gifts from Bill & Laurie Benenson and Susan Stockel.
