Arcata Eye Scene

A-town art, music, theatre. Mostly music. Updated Wednesdays.

The Hunting of the Snark (recommended)

Checked out Dell’Arte‘s 27th annual holiday play last night. Full review in the next Eye (that’s the Tuesday, Nov. 27 issue). In the meantime, if you’re thinking of catching it tonight in Blue Lake or tomorrow at the Van Duzer, here’s notes from last night:

(amazing that I can read them, scrawled mostly in the dark as they were)
Carlo is packed
How many plays have I seen at Dell’Arte?
Set looks great – cockeyed with platforms of varying levels, books and pipes, a trunk, a crate, a dangling carrot
7,000 people will see for free
from Cave Junction to Laytonville
strange and surreal opening
8 characters
excellent flashback
wonderful cartoonish faces
laughing children audience
banker in trunk!
physical comedy brilliant
