WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

EXTENDED Three Weeks! The True History of The Tragic Life and Triumphant Death of Julia Pastrana, the Ugliest Woman in the World by Shaun Prendergast relates the real-life story of a Mexican peasant exploited by an American showman as a circus freak. The play, performed completely in the dark, asks who is the ugly one--the deformed woman or the profiteering showman? Audience members feel the performers move around them, smell the carnival, and hear the haunting sounds of this bizarre world. They have their imaginations stimulated in ways they have never experienced before. Do not confuse this with a staged reading or a radio play. You won't believe your senses. Director J.V. Mercanti graduated from Mason Gross School of the Arts and was the Resident director of the National Tour of Cabaret. He served as Assistant Director for the recent Broadway revival of A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, Neil Simon's Little Me, Roundabout's You Never Can Tell, Signature Theatre Company's Bosoms and Neglect, and the National Tour of Chicago. The cast includes Erin Williams in the title role, Evan Mueller, Jonathan Fielding, Frances Mercanti-Anthony and Jessica Myhr. Read Philip Hopkins' review and Peter Filichia's Diary. There are student and senior discounts for $15.00.
