In The Butcher Boy, an Anti-Coming of Age Story
They creep in from the shadows,
snorting and snickering. The singing pigs that skulk and shimmy through
The Butcher Boy, which opened on Monday at the Irish Repertory
Theater, are silly but also half menacing. Below the neck, theyre
dressed like townspeople in 1960s Ireland, where the new musical, written
and composed by Asher Muldoon, is set. From the jowls up, however, their
snout-nosed masks are eerily impassive.
The swine chorus appears to be a totem
of indecency, embodying the dark and unknown depths of the shows
narrator, Francie (Nicholas Barasch), a jaunty lad with flame-colored
hair and an implacably sunny disposition. . . .
Performing Slapsticks is back. Designed for Commedia
dell'Arte performers: now available.
After years of design testing, research and development, happy to have
created slapsticks that looks like Arlecchino's replacement for his sword;
which is a simple stick. His stick, is a slapstick, which creates a loud
smack sound with a light tap. Yes the term "slapstick
comedy" comes from this instrument and prop.
