Isabella Rossellini and Pan Celebrate Opening Night of Link Link Circus
Alan Alda, Sasson Gabay, and more also dropped by.
Link Link Circus, Isabella Rossellini's new off-Broadway show with her dog, Pan, officially opened at the Frederick Loewe Theatre at Hunter College. Presented by Hunter Theater Project, the show runs through May 3. Check out photos from the opening-night celebration below.
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 plays various animals in the production. Andy Byers (April 18-26) and Caleb Lane (April 27-May 3) 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).
