Last Dance, Clown.
I just heard that our pals at The Foundry are puttin’ on a show! It is called Ugo’s Last Dance and I don’t know anything about it but a friend of mine knows the producer and said it should be cool. Here’s some words from the website:
FROM THE FOUNDRY’S PRODUCERS CHAIR AWARD WINNER: DEEKSHA GAUR
SEPTEMBER 10TH – OCTOBER 4TH
a brand new musical by David Lefort Nugent, directed by Alec Tok. Based on the thirty-third canto from Dante’s Inferno, Ugo’s Last Dance is a beautiful and haunting tale about three clowns, whose fame as political commentators under the previous regime, leads them—under a tyrannical usurper—to languish their days away in a jail cell, where this play is set. Faced with the looming specters of starvation and torture, there is little hope of salvation. Through performance, puppetry, and with live accompaniment from folk rock band Moore & Sons, Ugo’s Last Dance will transport you to a magical and sinister land, where memories and illusion intertwine, where reality becomes fiction, and where every moment is a struggle to hold on to your humanity.
