Wednesday, April 17, the popular Mad Cat Theater Company presents two performances at 7 and 9:30 p.m. This time Mad Cat company member, Jessica Farr has written a new play “Charming Acts of Misery” that follows the ups and downs of fashion muse Isabella Blow (1958-2007) known to most for her brazen individual style and for discovering Alexander McQueen. Spanning several decades, this whirligig ride into Isabella’s life traverses both the fashion scene and the underpinnings of its central character’s psyche. We follow “Issi” through the jungles of Sri Lanka, New York City and London until the lines between her public and private life become intensely blurred. Get ready South Beach and put a hat on it! Directed by Paul Tei. This is a fundraiser for the Company and tickets are $45.00 (VIP) and $25.00 in advance. On the day of the show tickets are $30.00 and $50.00 (VIP) available at the box office only.
And don’t forget to catch the free Outdoor Comedy Stage on Lincoln Road at Euclid Avenue, nightly from Thursday through Saturday at 9PM. Always a highlight of the Festival, this year you can catch rising stars Michael Che, Chris Distefano, Sean Donnelly, Sarah Tiana and Brooks Wheelan.
