• Bald Soprano 2024 Postcard FRONT DRAFT 2024 04 01 732x1024

City Garage brings back its acclaimed production of The Bald Soprano by Eugene Ionesco. This mad, crazy, wildly funny play is the comic masterpiece that launched the Theatre of the Absurd. It was first produced in 1950 is now the longest running, continuously performed show in history at le Théatre de la Huchette in Paris. It's the story of an ordinary evening in the home of M. and Madame Smith that spins madly out of control as they entertain their guests, the Martins. Dazzling in its linguistic acrobatics, the play is a comic masterpiece of joyful, irrational anti-logic and a looney parody of the stolid, thick-witted world of middleclass propriety. In an escalating battle of banalities, polite conversation turns to confusion, then mayhem, and finally explodes into cheerful, liberating chaos. Simultaneously comic and profound, it is a short, sharp ludicrous journey into a funhouse mirror version of the world we think we know—and the truth of what we do not.
