What beauty lies in the heart of the beast?

When a troupe of Commedia dell’Arte actors roll into town you know you’re in for a zany treat. This time they retell the story of The Beauty and the Beast. But you’ve never seen it like this before. Between Panatalone’s love of his money, Isabella and Leandro’s love for each other and the crazy Zanni’s, you’re certain to be in stitches.
