Isabella Rossellini (Death Becomes Her) and her dog Pan will take the stage in their new off-Broadway show Link Link Circus. Presented by Hunter Theater Project, the production will run April 18-May 3 at the Frederick Loewe Theatre at Hunter College.

Link Link Circus is a comedic and scientifically informed look at the link between humans and animals, via Darwin's theory of evolution. Rossellini will explore the brilliance of the animal kingdom in a show illustrated with her short comic films, home movies, and animation, while transforming herself into thinkers like Aristotle, Darwin, and Descartes. Pan will play various animals in the production. Andy Byers (April 18-26) and Caleb Lane (April 27-May 3) will serve as assistants.

In addition to Rossellini, the creative team features Rick Gilbert (set design, line producer), Byers (set design, costume design, composer), Guido Torlonia (codirector), Bill Berloni (animal director), Fanny Karst (Ring Leader costumes), Andy Smetanka and Courtney Pure (animation), Gina Freedman (props), Stacey Foster (film and audio clips editor), and Jason L. Miller (technical director).
