About This Show

The Dell’Arte Company’s Second Skin is written and performed by Joan Schirle, and directed and designed by Giulio Cesare Perrone.

Second Skin is a unique and stunning solo performance, based in Schirle’s mastery of mask performance, voice and movement. Passionate and humorous, her show transports the audience to the world of 15 unforgettable characters, all related to a young woman convinced she possesses the soul of Marilyn Monroe. With her ability to voice young and old, male and female, trashy and wise, Schirle catapults a traditional form into the 21st century. Audiences and critics have described Joan Schirle’s “Second Skin” as inspiring, funny, beautiful, stunning, moving, magical and a tour de force.

Box office opens 1/2 hour before show.
