All'italiana - Boston Italian Theatre Company
Ciao! Did you know that we are the only Italian theatre company in New England?
We are a theater group affiliated with Pazzi Lazzi Troupe under the artistic direction of Chiara Durazzini e Eleonora Francesca Cordovani . The group performs in Italian and specializes in staging shows by Italian playwrights and authors.
The company consists of theater labs where participants learn and practice acting
through drama exercises and games, improvisation, and experimenting with
theatrical plays, as well as a repertoire of shows in Italian. Some of us are theater professionals, while others come from widely different backgrounds, such as medical science, computer science, arts and humanities. To all of us, theatre is an exciting way to express creativity and love for Italian culture and language.
Please consider supporting and helping us sustain the costs of the rehearsal room and theater rental, costumes, props and all the other expenses that a theater company must face. Hopefully, we will be able to continue offering Italian culture and art, and include any of you who might be interested in experiencing theater in Italian!
-- On Thursday, March 30th, 2023 at 7:30 PM we will perform LA GIARA by Luigi Pirandello - A One Act Play with Live Southern Italian Music at Bentley University. Directed by Chiara Durazzini. Free and Open to All!
We are also in the process of actively looking for sponsors and funds for our new show IO MI CANTO DA SOLA - STORIE DI DONNE MAI ARRESE directed by Eleonora Francesca Cordovani. It is a collection of monologues by historical women victims of violence, in Italian with English subtitles. It will debut on June 9, 10 and 11, 2023 at the Boston Playwrights' Theatre in Boston. We will also give a presentation about the project on Friday March 10, 2023 at 6:30 PM at the Italian bookstore I AM Books.
The goal of the show is to raise awareness about the condition of women, throughout history, in a mostly male-dominated society.
All ticket revenue will be donated to two charities:
Casa Myrna, Boston’s largest provider of shelter and support services to survivors of domestic violence.
Mabel Center for Immigrant Justice, whose mission is to provide expert pro-bono legal services to asylum-seeking families, women and children that have survived unimaginable violence in pursuit of safety in the United States.
