Burbage Theatre Company presents Animals, by Kevin Broccoli
We often have the opportunity to extol Kevin Broccoli’s remarkably prodigious and always-creative output. And as we’ve spent way too many minutes (aka a coupla hours) staring at the blinking cursor while trying to get into the Editors' Picks Frame of Mind, we decided to start with KB’s latest project (hoping for some divine inspiration). Animals “is a meditation on the relationships between humans and animals that is equally funny and heartwarming,” according to the PR sheet (which we’re fairly confident Broccoli wrote; it’s what the guy does). More? “Ever wonder what goes on in the minds of our primitive animal counterparts? Curious about what would happen to a snail on hallucinogens? What does the diet of a pigeon really consist of? Are all of our beloved pet cats and dogs really just playing the cute card to manipulate us?” Find out what Dr. Dolittle already knows when the Burbage Theatre Company stages Broccoli’s latest brainstorm (directed by Alex Gorgone) at the Artists’ Exchange, 50 Rolfe Sq, Cranston. Shows are today through Sunday and the 12th-14th at 8 pm | $15, $10 students | 401.490.9475 | btctheater.webs.com
