The Fools In Progress Theatre Company presents La Prima Donna an original production featuring Bianca Bonino and Ben-Jamin.
The play was spored from the need to demonstrate as many characters of Commedia dell’Arte as possible to high school students approaching the subject. What was built to be a simple educational exercise and originally called Duo Commedia, became Fools in Progress most successful original production as it is at once hilarious, informative and entertaining.
The show remains a great introduction to Commedia as Fools In Progress perform in a comic sequence eight famous stock characters: Il Dottore, Flavio, Colombina, Brighella, Pulcinella, Il Capitano, Pantalone and of course Arlecchino. If you have never seen a Commedia dell’Arte performance before, this is the best way to get to know the main characters, the masks and the over the top acting style that Commedia dell’Arte requires.
