The Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret

The latest edition of Bread and Puppet Theater’s cabaret series, the Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret, features the Jolly Battle between Mountaintop Removal Protesters and Mountaintop Machinery; an ancient take on bananas, a President, and a Chair; and much more, all interspersed with commentary from Karl Marx. The Even Cheaper Accordion and String ensemble will provide soothing sounds for winter-weary nerves.

The Dirt Cheap Money Circus

The Dirt Cheap Money Circus features the billionaire bonus celebration dance, the logic of the US Healthcare System, the history of humanity and the removal of a mountaintop,  interspersed with appearances by Karl Marx, who confronts the 2009 economic situation with his existential thoughts about money and our relationship to it.  And much more.  As always, this year’s circus performs to a live band.

Some of the circus acts are politically puzzling to adults, but accompanying kids can usually explain them. After each performance there will be an opportunity to savor the troupe's famous sourdough rye bread, smeared with garlic aioli, and to purchase the theater's Cheap Art.

About The Bread and Puppet Theater

Bread & Puppet has performed social justice theater with giant puppets for 45 years since forming on the streets of New York City in the 1960s. Their earliest work was on the subjects of war, rats, garbage collection and rent strikes. They pioneered the use of giant puppets in street protests against the Vietnam War. Bread & Puppet is internationally honored and performs each year on their farm in rural Vermont throughout July and August. In the off season, they tour domestically and internationally. So come see them while they're here!

The White House announced that President Obama will hold a final, pre-vote rally for health care reform at the George Mason University Patriot Center on Friday.  The doors open at 9 a.m. with the President scheduled to speak around 11:30 a.m.  The event is open to the public and
no tickets are necessary.

I am calling for Fairfax County Democrats to join in the rally to support one of the most important pieces of legislation in our lifetime.  We are planning to have sign-carrying supporters surround the Patriot Center and roads leading to the area.  A sign making and phone banking party will take place Thursday afternoon from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the George Mason campus.  Also we need your help Friday morning at 8 a.m. to stand outside the Patriot Center to greet people as they arrive.  Please come to join these efforts.  Extensive national media coverage is anticipated.  Every effort will be made to bring our rally supporters into the Patriot Center in time to hear the President.

The details and links to sign up are listed below.  Don’t let the Tea Party Republicans have the last word.  This is your chance to get involved and be heard.

Scaffolding crashes on clown! Raspberry jello splatters! Kilts inflate! Chicago's premiere physical theater company 500 Clown explodes Shakespeare' s classic. With grunts, groans, bruising battles and nary a word, three clowns try to mount the cursed Scottish play but implode in a back-stabbing massacre of physical risk and profoundly hilarious comedy. It was 2002 when we presented the sold-out Baltimore premiere of 500 Clown Macbeth, and for eight years our audiences have bugged us to bring the show back—so we did! Q&A follows.

"And with little more than a few choice lines from the original, some brazenly deconstructed ad-libs, a hospital emergency room's worth of death-defying gymnastics and off-the-wall stunts, plus a ferociously twisted sense of anarchy, they have turned `the Scottish play' into something fast, furious and insanely true to its core."
Chicago Sun-Times

"Entirely scattershot, ribald and exhilarating" New York Times

" Jaw dropping! Hilarious!" Chicago Tribune

" Comic intellectualism. ..with out being pretentious. " Variety

This tour of 500 Clown is made possible by a grant from Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program. Presented with support from Quest Productions & QuestFest. Supported by Susan Gould and Bo Willse.

Thursday show only—Members' Happy Hour 6:30 w/ food, $2 drinks & priority seating.

SIGNING: Sat Mar 20 Q & A is signed.
If you'd like a signer for another performance please contact Megan at the above number a week or more prior to the performance.

ADVANCE:The Clowns perform Macbeth on a 13' tall scaffolding that implodes around them, taking up a lot of our theater & reducing our capacity significantly, hence we encourage you to buy advance!

I make no secret my views on drug use. I believe that people use drugs because they work. and I believe in use, not abuse.

Hi, all!

As most of you know, we are in the process of building our sets in Glen Burnie, MD. Due to our filming schedule, we could use some additional help this week.

The rough schedule for this week:

Today - after 1 p.m. until late
Tuesday through Friday - 10 a.m. until late
Saturday and Sunday - TBD

Address: 180 Penrod Ct., Ste. N & O

A new online presence for New York's buskers
Hi everyone,
I've set up a performance/art website for New York's street artists. There's a clickable map on the front page where you can see the location of street performers and artists, plus videos and photos and some contact information. It's supposed to showcase the talents of the artists and to provide them with an audience past that of the sidewalk. There's no money involved in the site, and any business you get from it is entirely yours. I'm not trying to make a buck, it's just a personal project of mine. I hope you like it, and I'm looking forward to getting feedback.

Here's the site:
