n February 7, the French-Canadian Cirque

Éloize presents

Saloon

, an acrobatic Wild

West adventure set to songs from Johnny Cash

and Patsy Cline. Performers soar on the Granada

Theatre stage in a high-thrills pursuit that takes

chase scene choreography to new heights.

Two nights later, comedian, actor and noted

filmmaker (

Don’t Think Twice

) Mike Birbiglia

blends storytelling and stand-up comedy in

Th

New One

(February 9).

Innovative theater group Charleroi Danses

presents

Kiss & Cry

on April 7 & 8. This ambitious

production blurs the boundaries between artistic

disciplines to create a “ravishingly beautiful”

(

Th Boston Globe

) piece about memory and love.

An elegant pas de deux of dancing fingers on

miniature landscapes ingeniously blends film,

music and theater.

Th final two shows in the Theater Series,

performed by New York-based theater troupe

Bedlam, are

Saint Joan

(April 19) and

Hamlet

(April 20). Choose between two classic iconic

figures: George Bernard Shaw’s steadfast

rebel, Joan, who challenged the Church,

and William Shakespeare’s dark, enigmatic

Prince of Denmark. Bedlam is known for its

“adventurously pared-down aesthetic” (

New

York Times

) and is a standout among critics and

audiences alike.
