The Bald Soprano

Bonjour Citygaragistes,

We’re happy to bring you this weekend the next in our series of “City Garage Classics,” Eugene Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece “The Bald Soprano” from 2007. It’s a lot of fun and the cast was nominated by the LA Weekly for “Best Comedy Ensemble Performance.” It was also “Recommended” by the LA Times. Here is information from the press release:

“Eugene Ionesco, one of the great innovators of the modern stage, invites you to a recital featuring “The Bald Soprano.” Dazzling in its linguistic acrobatics, the play is a comic masterpiece of joyful, irrational anti-logic and a loony parody of the stolid, thick-witted world of middleclass propriety. In an escalating battle of banalities, polite conversation turns to confusion, then mayhem, and finally explodes into cheerful, liberating chaos. Simultaneously comic and profound, it is a short, sharp ludicrous journey into a funhouse mirror version of the world we think we know—and the truth of what we do not.”
It will be showing on our City Garage YouTube channel from 8:00pm on Friday through midnight on Wednesday. Please share the link with your friends:
