Zuppa Theatre Co. presents Tiny Vaudevilles: Two Short Plays by Anton Chekhov from May 7 to 11 at The Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Road, Halifax.

For those of you who loved the vaudevillian comedy in Zuppa Theatre Co.’s “Slowly I Turn: a parlor vaudeville in one act ” – it’s back, and this time it’s Russian! This May, say “dosvedanya” to winter doldrums and “hello” to laughter as the Zuppa Theatre Co. ensemble brings their trademark theatrical style to Anton Chekhov’s The Bear and The Proposal. 
Performed by Stewart Legere, Susan Leblanc, and Ben Stone, and directed by the company, these two Mini Farces, or Jokes in One Act, are fast-paced comedies full of preposterous situations and miscommunications, pratfalls, broken furniture, exasperation, fainting spells, and more.
Written in the heyday of Vaudeville, the plays have been translated by Julian West.
Drink-a-long with the characters! Each $5 drink-a-long ticket allows you 2 oz of Iceberg Vodka or a snifter of Garrison Brewing Co.’s Grand Baltic Porter. There will be six opportunities to raise your glass—three times in each act. Drink-a-long tickets can be purchased with show tickets at http://tinyvaudevilles.eventbrite.ca or at the door. You must be 19+ to drink-a-long.
WHEN: May 7 – 11, 2014
WHERE: The Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Rd., Halifax
TIME: 8 PM Wednesday to Saturday | 2 PM Sunday
$20 general admission
(902) 489-9872 
I am a huge fan of Zuppa Theatre, and I just love what they do. You can read some of my past reviews of Zuppa Theatre productions here and here. I love what Zuppa does with movement, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing this performance.
