May 14th: Commedia Teatro presents Ian Thal @ Outpost 186

Or: I haven't the time to design a new poster because the show must go on!

Back in 2004, I met Jonathan Samson, who had the mad idea to create a commedia dell'arte inspired television series. This led to a rather intense period of working and playing together over a period of several weeks. Then Jonathan left for Thailand, planning to stay but for a few months, instead, he stayed and founded Thailand's first commedia troupe: Commedia del Siam! Several years later, we got to talking about doing some shows together when he is back in the states. We try to get a few gigs together and then on the on the facebook page for one of those gigs, Jonathan writes:

I'm gonna have to be there in spirit only! My transportation to Boston has been impeded by political rioting in Bangkok, the volcanic eruption in Iceland, and the poor global economy. Ian will be producing and directing a wonderful commedia show by himself... and I am so jealous that all of you are gonna get to see it live!

The room has been paid for, so the show must go on! Here's the poster anyway:

I shall be performing a short bill of:

O, Mister Sun, Don't You Fall Asleep On Me (corporeal mime and mask)
The Marmalope (mime)
Arlecchino Am Ravenous (commedia dell'arte)

The event is Friday, May 14th at 8pm
