Chanticleer and the Fox: Nun's Priest's Tale with Chaucer Theatre
Chaucer Theatre makes their Seventh Avenue Performances debut with Chanticleer and the Fox: Nun's Priest's Tale (a musical comedy) from Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. What happens when you get humans playing chickens playing humans, add a fox, and stir in some music? A LOT of fun! Don't miss this delightful musical barnyard romp with the hen-pecked Chanticleer and a flattering fox, dreams and philosophical chickens make for a rousing - or roosting - tale ... or tail. Performed in modern English, Chanticleer & the Fox: Nun's Priest's Tale, is an interactive tale filled with portentous dreams and farmyard philosophizing. As if by magic, four Canterbury pilgrims are pulled irresistibly into Aesop's fable of Chanticleer & the Fox; for this is a land of dreams ... silly one moment as Chanticleer and his hen wife Pertelote tangle in a lover's tiff ... and dangerous the next when dreams of ages past deliver their warnings ... and then of course there's a hungry Fox theologizing with his brunch. Elements of British panto keeps everyone on their toes, paws or claws in this fun-filled tale - a great event for the entire family!
