WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

One Actor. Fifteen Characters. One Thousand Catastrophes. The Great One-Man Commedia Epic, created & performed by Matthew R. Wilson, was originally commissioned for Italy's 20th Annual Stage Internazionale and further developed on tour through Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, Barcelona, Madrid, and London is coming to New York City. Actor/writer/director Matthew R. Wilson single-handedly brings to life the entire cast of 15 characters drawn from the historical commedia dell'arte. The story is the classic story of Italian Renaissance comedy: the lives of young lovers are thrown into chaos as wedding plans are threatened by squabbling fathers, boasting war heroes, and a host of well-meaning but dim-witted servants. An entire town stands on the brink of tragedy before love prevails, normalcy is restored, and comedy triumphs. A treat for physical theatre fans, scholars of dramatic history, and the fun-loving child in all of us, this remarkable event is sure to please anyone who wants to see how modern comedy began 500 years ago as well as those who are looking for laughs today.
