The Rotten Plantains (one show only) Aug 7 NY
This looks to be a really interesting show if you get a chance to see it. Patrick de Valette has been really excellent in everything I’ve seen him in, including Les Chiche Capon (and Fred Blin was one of his original partners in that)
The Rotten Plantains in “French Connection (via Texas and Brazil)” – Comedy
Never have you seen such a gathering of clowns, comedians, and a Brazilian alcoholic (who happens to be our roommate) take the stage. A mix of clowns and circus, cultures and experiences, together, form this new comedy show. Here, they will meet on the stage together for the first time.
From Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai/ Love/Banana Shpeel/Dralion, Jean Pierre Jeunet’s Micmacs, Franco Dragone’s Le Reve, and the Betty Ford Clinic – comes this flawlessly rehearsed production of beautiful idiots attempting to make you laugh.
This is the beginning of their collaboration together, this one night only show, will plan their world tour – from NYC, London, Paris, Rio, Calcutta, Nigeria, Osasco (SP), Australia, Beirut, and the Netherlands. Come join in on this ground-breaking event.
