Tittillating theater...

Last night the BF and I saw David Grimm's new play "The Miracle of Naples", which is Grimm's rendition of commedia dell'arte; a traveling troupe of actors arrives in Naples on the customary day of the miracle of St. Gennaro, except that the miracle doesn't happen properly, and *ALL* public celebrations are stopped until the miracle happens. Mayhem ensues as the troupe and local residents deal with lust, love, satisfaction and frustration. In the end everyone ends up either with the lover that they deserve (which may not be the one that they want) or with no lover but happy about it. The happiest match is the accidental one between two men aided by a so-called "love potion"...
