As you probably have noticed, Boston has a pretty rich theater community — and over the next few days, we’ll be focusing on a few local companies: friends of ours who are offering ticket discounts for members of the Emerson community!
Watch this space today, tomorrow, and Thursday. If folks are fans (like the links on Facebook, or leave a note in the comments), perhaps we’ll make this a regular series!
And now, we’re pleased to present our first featured production, from Puppet Showplace Theatre:
“The Orphan Circus”
by Les Sages Fous
Wed, Thurs & Fri, Nov 13, 14 & 15 at 7:30pm
32 Station Street, Brookline MA
Les Sages Fous are an award-winning company from Québec, Canada. Their celebrated “unusual” performance style combines puppetry, live acting, and ingenious production design. “The Orphan Circus” is an awe-inspiring theatrical experience where two junk peddlers create a small circus of visual tableaux evoking the life of a cabaret troupe of derelicts and misfits — a place where the gruesome become the beauties and even impossible love can be fulfilled.

“Imagine a close-up, dystopian Cirque du Soleil.” –Roxanna Myhrum, Artistic Director/Puppet Showplace.
“The Orphan Circus” is presented as part of the “Puppets at Night” series of evening puppetry performances for adults and teens at Puppet Showplace.
