Well, this was a fantastic event, and very well attended! Thousands of people passing through, and the guests loved the Commedia Mania Street sets! It was definitely a hot one, and special thanks to Sue Muldoon for bringing us some water after our first set! The Maniac's look forward to coming back for another show at this venue for sure! Now, it's time for Rinaldo and Daniela to prepare for Enfield and our new Zanni Act. However, there may be another full cast appearance coming up in a couple weeks! Stay tuned!

Another very successful year at the Mutton and Mead Medieval Festival. Commedia Mania performed two classics of Don Juan and the Great Greek Tragedy of Electra, in addition to our newest show Cinderella. The Irreverant fairy tale definitely drew the biggest audience, although some of that could be attributed to time of day and shade cover, but I was still very proud of the material. It is always interesting to see how other acts, casts, and audiences react to Commedia Mania. The people at this show were very passionate about the sets, and often would ensure to catch all three. We had many interesting requests on th street!

Hopefully we will be returning to the show next year, but until then It's time to get ready for Coventry, CT Farmer's Market!

2012 Madness!

Many new shows this year! It is very exciting, albeit stressful for the road weary troupe master, Scott Kegler. This weekend we will be setting out to the Mutton and Mead Medieval Festival for our return since last year. This is a great show, and is still growing. Last year the even was only for one day and this year is a whole weekend. If you haven't been you should really makes plans to come check it out! There is a great joust group, a very funny mud show, celtic music stylings, clowns/jesters, a GORGEOUS site, mutton....and mead, OH and of course COMMEDIA MANIA NEW MATERIAL. We will be showcasing our first puppet work in the show as well as one new costume. So come out and enjoy some Shameless Theatrical Nonsense!

I am so happy to finally have a website up! This journey has been a long one, let me tell you! I performed in my first Commedia Dell Arte show when I was 14 years old. I immediately feel in love with a form that combines intelligence, physicality, and humor all the time. I then was fortunate enough to cross paths with a mask performing genius, Larry Hunt! I would list him as one of my greatest inspirations in this medium. I also had the pleasure of working with Augusto Cabrera, however that time was very short. I am hoping to get out to Sweden to learn some more, but we do keep in touch. I am excited to what the future holds for Commedia Mania, as the show grows and grows. As always thanks to all the fans. I only hope to keep the laughs coming for you!
