Oct 31 @ 7:30 pm
Saint Mary's Theatre and Dance: The Knight of the Burning Pestle @ Page Theatre

With a modern day theatricality remarkably ahead of its time, this witty comic satire of theatre (and its audience) contains much revelry, popular song, and audience interaction! Shakespeare’s contemporary and sometime collaborator, Francis Beaumont, penned this crazy comedy around 1607. Rarely produced in America, The Knight of the Burning Pestle (pun intended), has seen a recent revival due to prominent productions by professional American Shakespeare companies. The company of actors performing The London Merchant are forced to recreate their production on the spot, indulging the whimsical impulses of their audience and enduring their constant interruptions while improvising alternate characters and adapting their romantic comedy into an action adventure parody! If Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Cervantes and Shakespeare had a theatrical love child, it would be this contemporary classical mashup!

Leyla McCalla @ Page Theatre

Leyla McCalla finds inspiration from a variety of sources, whether it is her Haitian heritage or dancing at Cajun Mardi Gras. Her music reflects her eclectic and diverse life experiences, including time spent in New York City, Ghana, and New Orleans. After touring with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, McCalla began to concentrate on a solo career. Her debut album, Vari-Colored Songs, a tribute to Langston Hughes, was named album of the year by both the London Times and Songlines magazine. The title of her sophomore effort, A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey, was ultimately derived from a Haitian proverb. It featured songs in English, French, and Haitian Creole, with appearances by Marc Ribot, Rhiannon Giddens, Louis Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers, and New Orleans singer/songwriter Sarah Quintana. Her recently released third album, The Capitalist Blues, reflects the influence of New Orleans on her music, as well as the “pressure cooker” effects of today’s society.
