Music, dance, laughter and juggling combine in the world premiere of Flings & Eros, a new vaudevillian romp by the internationally renowned Flying Karamazov Brothers at Merrimack Repertory Theatre; stage direction by Paul Magid.
The new show takes audiences backstage with the Flying Karamazov Brothers as they rehearse scenes from their reinterpretation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. With the four Karamazov Brothers playing all the parts, audiences will experience a Romeo and Juliet like they've never seen before, complete with original music, combat juggling and antic dancing. Of course, nothing during their rehearsal goes quite as expected, and the Brothers take time in between scenes to muse on their own loves, both past and present. The youngest Karamazov Brother, Zossima, has a new girlfriend whose mysterious past is revealed as the K's work their way through Shakespeare's classic scenes.
