Ugo's Last Dance is a beautiful musical, based on a canto of Dante's
Inferno, and is the story of three clowns who, under the leadership of
a religious despot, are imprisoned for sedition. It is a play about
survival, about trying to find humanity in the face of oppression, and
the blossoming of love in even the most dire of circumstances. The
production is an extravaganza of music, clowning, foley, fights,
dances, and live musical accompaniment by Moore & Sons, a folk rock
band from Brooklyn. Think vaudeville meets trunk show meets German
Expressionism! Inspiration has come in parts from Commedia styles,
works like La Strada, and Charlie Chaplin.

Tour, we will leave from NY City every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Imagine a pair of stilt-walking minstrels around a city's Downtown

tumbler wowing crowds on a busy day in the park!
