The Bald Soprano

By Eugène Ionesco
Translated by Donald M. Allen
Directed by Hal Brooks
Running: September 13 - October 23, 2011

AndrewAndrew Review:

"Deliriously silly fun"
-The New York Times

“Hal Brooks directs with vigor, aided by a cast that smoothly mines Ionesco's modern classic for its humor and sly satire”
-Huffington Post

"Brooks...mixes the ha-ha funny with the disquieting and the scary"
-Village Voice

“The Bald Soprano is as fresh as ever in Hal Brooks' spot-on production”

“Well worth your time and attention”

Meet the Smiths. They live in a typical house on a typical street, cheerfully entertaining typical friends and typical neighbors . . . in a world that’s anything but typical. Eugène Ionesco’s game-changing absurdist comedy tumbles us into a bizarre and brilliant comic universe, where time is out of joint, language has misplaced its meaning, and identity itself is up for grabs.
