Ronnie Burkett is Back in Toronto with THE DAISY THEATRE
THE DAISY THEATRE is Ronnie Burkett unleashed, unscripted, and flying by the seat of his pants, manipulating and voicing his characters through variety acts, impromptu monologues, musical numbers and audience participation, featuring a cast of over thirty marionettes.
"I've never had such a reaction from audiences" says Burkett, "The Daisy Theatre has really touched something we've been missing, I think...wild fun, lots of laughter, true uncensored risk coming from the stage, and some deeply reflective moments about the day we are all in. It's quite raunchy and sweet at the same time, sort of like watching a drag show in church."
Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes is well known to Factory Theatre audiences from the held-over successes Billy Twinkle, Requiem For a Golden Boy and Penny Plain. "I'm excited to be playing the more intimate Daisy Theatre in the Factory Studio space" says Burkett, "My first Toronto performances started there in 1988 with Theatre of Marionettes' first show, Fool's Edge. The Studio allows us all to be up close and personal with these little wooden actors-and the audience can drink!"
