GLI$TER: A Fringe Arts show

The Hum’n’bards are back for the 2017 Philadelphia Fringe Festival!

This year The Hum’n’bards have adapted the story of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice and taken themes from Orwell’s Animal Farm to create a show inspired by Weimar-era cabaret, clowning, and street theatre: GLI$TER.

Join The Banker and his tribe of Sad American Clowns as they weave the story of Shylock, Portia, Antonio, and Bassanio, all struggling to find common ground in a world controlled by judgement and greed. Featuring original music by Anna Michael and Travis Fischbach and performances by Eric Jaffe, Christina Higgins, Anna Michael, Travis Fischbach, Jeremy Adam, Taylor Plunkett-Clements and Lexi Pozonsky, GLI$TER will transport you to a sexy, glitter-fueled world where The Banker always wins.

…but remember to come prepared to tip with small bills, because these clowns work for cash and an empty hat can stop the show!

TWO SHOWS!
Tuesday, September 12th & Sunday, September 17th!!
Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm.
