UAA Theatre Presents He Who Gets Slapped
by Kathleen McCoy |
UAA Theatre and Dance present Leonid Andreyev's touching circus drama, He Who Gets Slapped, a mystical melodrama that intermingles slapstick and tragedy. This compelling production tells the story of a betrayed scientist who becomes a clown in a bizarre circus and triumphs by being slapped by other clowns. In spite of his popularity, his search for love plunges him into violent confrontation. Written shortly before the Russian Revolution, He Who Gets Slapped, remains a poignant social and political critique bursting with romance and physical comedy. The production runs March 2 - March 18 in the Mainstage Theatre, Fine Arts Building. For ticket information, call 786-4TIX.
