A Smart Yet Comedic Look at the Links Between Humans and Animals
Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini is the Ringmaster in this new “theatricalized lecture” inspired by the natural world. Illustrated with short comic films, home movies, and animation, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, a medieval theologian, and other helpful thinkers of the past, while her dog portrays various species. New York Magazine calls Isabella Rossellini “the best professor you could ever imagine: witty, lovely to watch.” Don't miss this vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.
*Following the Sunday, Feb 17 performance, Isabella has opened her home to a benefit dinner for both organizations. This is a tremendous and unique opportunity to share in the place that Ms. Rossellini has made into her home for the past 35 years. A limited number of 50 tickets will be sold to the dinner separately from the show for a $250 contribution.
