The classic French film of this name, shot in the early 1940's, was a fictional biography of a Mime, Debureau, who lived and performed in Paris in the 1840's, and was the first one to use Pierrot as the leading character instead of Harlequin.This play is based on Debureuâ€™s actual biography, and includes Mime pieces he did that were written down by his son over 150 years ago, parts of which were performed in the film. With a company of 14 Mime/Actor/Gymnasts, headed by Chris Douros, with music by Harrison Wade, the action-filled play gives us a look at a little-known time, in the life of an artist pursuing a little known Art.
