THE DANCING HANDKERCHIEF

June 1 – 18, 2017

Part magic act, part musical, part puppet show, this world premiere with early songs by Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony-winner Robert Lopez, tells the story of Mysterioso the Magician and his curious child Bastienne who, through an epic separation and reunion, learn to see each other in a truer, hope-filled light. A Balladeer sings delightful tunes that paint a comic and fantastical world inhabited by a beckoning handkerchief, an otherworldly suitcase, magical creatures and one gigantic, ravenous rabbit. A unique hybrid theatrical extravaganza, The Dancing Handkerchief will mesmerize patrons small and tall.
