celebrates Commedia dell’Arte Day 2014 with a staged reading of
The Good Devil
in Spite of Himself
by Mario Baldessari & Tyler Herman
directed by Tyler Herman
Join us for a staged reading of a new comedy spoofing a pivotal moment in Commedia history! “The Good Devil” follows the comic travails of a 17th Century comedy troupe slapped with a royal decree of censorship forbidding them from using dialogue in their plays. The restriction sends the troupe on a rollercoaster ride of comic invention as they seek to successfully skirt the rules while putting on their play.
► Doug Wilder as the Royal Messenger and the Devil.
► Vaughn Irving as Signor Spittitucci, Pantalone, Il Dottore and Lelio.
► Liz Dutton as Signora Spittitucci, Isadore and Colombina.
► Monday, February 24 @ 7:30 PM
Admission is free. Seats can be reserved by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and providing your name and the number of tickets desired. Doors open at 7 pm.
The staged reading is being held at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art’s black-box theater. Directions here.
