A footnote in Ancient Greece becomes the hero of his own not-particularly-tragic tragedy.
Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble Presents The Lesser Tragedy of Pammon: a Comedy Beware of Greeks bearing big pointy spears. November 13, 15, 17*, 21, 22, 23 at 7:30pm November 14 at 9:30pm At the Rudyard Kipling *Yes, November 17 is a Monday. Unusual? Yes. Trendy? We hope so. Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble proudly announces its latest original piece, The Lesser Tragedy of Pammon: a Comedy. Pammon of Troy was one of the great footnotes of Greek mythology. Or he could have been – no one knows anything about him but his name. He was just a footnote after all. Like it says up there. So maybe if he had been “great” more would have been said about him. Is that the tragedy? Or the comedy? We’re not sure. Regardless, he’s the star - or at least the title character – of Le Petomane’s The Lesser Tragedy of Pammon: a Comedy. So join us, won’t you, as we celebrate good Pammon in story, song and dance in our latest classical tragedy/ pretentious rock opera/ gratuitous slapstick creation. Le Petomane, variously called: "The thinking person's favorite performers” and “the well-honed edge of cutting edge theater” (LEO), “Louisville’s finest alternative theater company” (Velocity), "fine, fast and funny...ensemble comedy of the first order" (Courier-Journal), said to “radiate . . . sheer brilliance” (TheatreLouisville.org), and named as one of the top five theatrical experiences of 2007 by Baltimore’s CityPaper; has done stranger things, frankly. But not by much. Note that the Friday, November 14 show doesn’t start until 9:30, following the InKY Poets monthly shindig (which has no cover and which we highly recommend as well). All performances are at the legendary Rudyard Kipling (422 W. Oak St.); tickets are available at our reliable $8-$20 pay-what-you-like sliding scale*. For more information, please contact Us@LePetomane.org or (502) 609-2520, or visit www.LePetomane.org. Le Petomane Theatre Ensemble is a member of the * a word or two about the sliding scale: one pays what one a) thinks fair and b) can afford; we make a reasonable amount either way. The low end is no higher than the price of a movie ticket; the high end is not such an issue, as we will gleefully accept any amount above $20 one cares to give. ###
