And please welcome these 3 fine shows to PURE:
Miniature Curiosa returns to PURE Theatre following their Charleston debut with Tonight A Clown Will Travel Time (2014 Piccolo Spoleto Festival). Loosely based on the life of amusement park revolutionary Frederick Ingersoll, Moon City follows Ingersoll’s obsessive endeavor to create an impossible wonderland in the untamed swamp. This two-person performance promises puppets, a thousand light bulbs, and of course, an entire amusement park in less than ten feet of space. A dramatic experience you have to see to believe, ripe with cunning feats of ingenuity, absurd leaps of imagination, and an underlying faith in the earnest simplicity of the human spirit. May 29 at 8 pm / May 30 at 2 pm / May 31 at 7 pm | Produced by Miniature Curiosa | Venue: PURE Theatre | Address: 477 King Street | Admission: $15
