The commedia troupe is missing and our hapless stage manager must play all 11 characters with only his mute musician for help. Watch as he juggles love, swords and scudi in this fast-paced show, 400 years in the making. Part Commedia dell’Arte, part Clown, Dead Man’s Mambo is a unique mix of highly structured scenario, wildly improvised performance and live music.
The Maryland Shakespeare Festival returns modern comedy theater to its Italian roots with a production in Frederick of Dead Man’s Mambo. A co-production with OMBELICO Mask Ensemble, a Philadelphia-based theatre company, the performance is a one-man show starring Maryland Shakespeare Festival artistic director John Bellomo. The show promises a fast-paced, raucous night of entertainment on two weekends, January 20-22 and January 27-29, at the Cultural Arts Center in downtown Frederick.
