The Jersey Devil is an original, fast-paced, 60-minute telling of the myth of the New Jersey Devil and will be at the SF Mime Troup Theater on July 19 and 20, 2012 at 8pm.
A band of traveling sideshow freaks has caught the devil and will unveil it to the audience after presenting its story. Done in a burlesque cabaret meets three-ring circus meets Laugh-In format, this three-man tour-de-force is told in the style of melodramatic farce mixed with the bloody Grand Guignol. The ensemble draws from techniques in clowning, puppetry, movement, music, and mask to bring this heightened world to life.
About the ACM Fund
Since announcing the creation of a memorial fund last year to honor the life and talent of Adrian C. Mejia, co-directors Eleni Zaharopoulos and Adolfo C. Mejia have been busy trying to make Adrian’s Project a reality. Adrian’s Project is an annual grant giving performing arts competition that was created as a way to help emerging, performing artists gain exposure. Adrian died in a hit and run at age 29, right at the beginning of a very promising artistic career.
