BAROCOCO at 59e59 in NYC – playing February 09 – March 06, 2022BAROCOCO dives into the late Baroque and flaunts 18th century finery, wigs, panniers, gestural styling, elaborate ornamentation and the excesses of Rococo in this unique physical comedy. A charming and charismatic six-person ensemble exposes an indulgent aristocratic lifestyle precariously perched on the edge of its extinction. Happenstance Theater invites you to experience the charade — from parlor games to pantomime, from the exquisite to the revolting — in this delightful comedy of manners. Tickets: $40 (59E59 Member price: $30)Run Time: 1 Hour, 15 Minutes, no intermission. Theater: Showing in Theater BDirected by Mark Jaster and Sabrina Selma Mandell, Devised by Happenstance Theater
With Gwen Grastorf, Caleb Jaster, Mark Jaster, Sabrina Selma Mandell, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, and Alex Vernon
