IL CAPITANO DEVE MORIRE (The Capitano Must Die), or THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE WRATH OF SIGNORA OLIMPIA: A COMEDY, is a world-premiere comedy written and directed by internationally-renowned Commedia dell’Arte Master Antonio Fava, conceived and performed by Antonio Fava and Barbara Charlene. PERFORMANCE DATES: March 21st - 26th at Gorilla Tango Theatre (Bucktown) March 27th & 28th at Full Circle Festival WHAT’S IT ABOUT? Signora Olimpia hates waiting. When her lover, the Capitano, dares to stand her up, sparks fly. And no one - not the Capitano, not his pot-bellied servant Pucinella, not even her jealous husband - is a match for Signora Olimpia in a rage. With her honor at stake, there is only one course of action: The Capitano must die! WHAT’S COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE? Commedia dell’Arte is one of history’s most enduring and influential forms of comedy. The godfather of Punch and Judy, Charlie Chaplin, Bugs Bunny, and The Three Stooges - its characters and situations have been delighting audiences for nearly five hundred years. Join that tradition with THE CAPITANO MUST DIE!
