Ticket prices ($25.00/35.00) include access to both the performance and post-show party. Special discounts are also available for groups of 10 or more.
“Has the audience rolling in the aisles.”—Variety
“Run to see it!”—Village Voice
“A sustained hour of heaven…theatre at its crazy, creative best.”—Time Out, London
“Like being transported to an alternate reality where all things are possible and most of them are funny.”—Los Angeles Times
Internationally known as “the human paper doll,” Ennio makes the art of origami into theatrical magic. Don’t miss the original quick-change artist as he races through fifty life-size costumes in seventy minutes, lampooning politicians, celebrities and historical figures in a presentation that’s part Commedia Dell’Arte, part Walt Disney—and fun for all ages. “An absolute hoot,” claims the New York Times, while the Los Angeles Times says “watching Ennio is like being transported to an alternate reality where all things are possible and most of them are funny.” Bring your friends, bring your kids—bring your mother-in-law if you must—but don’t miss this limited-engagement event, this summer at Berkeley Rep!
