Real Live Theatre presents the world premiere of The Lion & The Clown: A Rumi Lovesong for Beauty & the Beast, an original script written and directed by RLT co-founder Ellen Morbyrne. An ensemble of eight actors recreates the story of a faerie and the woman he curses into a lioness, as they entangle themselves in the life of a small traveling circus that is struggling to survive in contemporary America. A Clown, a Wire-Walker, a Lion-Tamer, a Juggler, a Manager, and a Balloon-Seller join Faerie and Sarah in weaving poetry, obscenity, magic, and love into an experience to remember.
