“material this good and delivered this well”

“… a stirring defense of poesy and of collaborative artistic productions, which join artist and audience and transform every monologue into a conversation – of the sort that material this good and delivered this well is bound to sustain, long after the lights come down and we walk back out into the night, no longer alone.”

“one of the best things staged all season”

Given that it’s covering birth, death and everything in between, it feels as though Theatre Gigante really is putting everything onstage . . . an entire, self-contained reality onstage for roughly one hour’s time … one of the best things to get staged all season.

“a powerful, cohesive piece of theater”

… a captivating, entertaining, and sometimes moving tapestry of spoken word, music, video, automatics and dance … the sum of parts is a powerful, cohesive piece of theater.


Upcoming Shows

Theatre Gigante turns Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on its head in MIDSUMMER IN MIDWINTER, written by Isabelle Kralj and Mark Anderson, and directed by Isabelle Kralj.

The mayhem of the original Midsummer – with its themes of love, marriage, appearance and reality, order and disorder – is turned into a farcical, musical, hybridical, theatrical convivial night, at the hands of the Gigante artistic team.

MIDSUMMER IN MIDWINTER will be told through dialogue, song and movement, in the typical Gigante style, featuring Deborah Clifton, John Kishline, Isabelle Kralj, Mark Anderson, Molly Corkins, Megan Kaminsky, Evan Koepnick, Bo Johnson, Edwin Olvera and Jessie Mae Scibek, with music created by Frank Pahl, and songs written and performed by Amanda Huff and Daniel Mitchell.
Lighting and Scenic Design by Eric Appleton.

May 9, 10, 15-17    7:30pm
