Performing Arts- Theater
Frizzi & Lazzi (which means “sparkling theatre”) is a music and theatre company of professional actors, singers and musicians dedicated to reviving the musical and theatrical entertainments performed by Italian-American immigrants at the turn of the last century. The body of work from which productions are adapted includes original plays, songs and skits by Italian-American writers and composers, as well as traditional theatre and music from the Italian repertory, all of which were performed on the stages of Little Italies around the United States. Our actors and performers dress in period costumes, and speak and sing in both English and Italian during performances to make the material accessible to everyone, and still retain the flavor of the original Italian. Our musical and theatrical material is ideal for your social and educational organizations and makes Italian cultural events and celebrations a success! Frizzi & Lazzi can also include variety type entertainments: such as, jugglers, acrobats, magicians, folk dancers, puppeteers, etc. The company also conducts workshops and provides educational lectures with video or audio presentations on various aspects of Italian and Italian-American culture: Carnevale - Masks - Italian-American Theatre - Italian Festivals - Pulcinella.
