LBCC Performing Arts to perform Commedia dell ‘Arte play “The Path of True Love”
The student-directed play is produced in the Commedia dell’ Arte style, a popular form of Italian theater during the Renaissance that combines the use of masks and improvisational slapstick comedy with singing and dancing.
This fun, lighthearted play features many of stock characters from the original play including Captain Spavento, Isabella, Franceschina and others.
The play spins the story of Captain Spavento, who decides to marry Isabella with the approval of her father, only to find Isabella and her maid, Franceschina, have come up with a convoluted plan to keep Isabella away from the Captain and in the arms of her true love.
Tickets are $10 general admission, $7 for students and seniors. Not recommended for children under the age of 13.
