Comic Mysteries (Mistero Buffo)
Dario Fo's Comic Mysteries (Mistero Buffo) at Emory College
is a masterpiece of physical comedy by the popular but often controversial Dario Fo. This playwright, actor and director has earned international acclaim for his political satires and farces, including Mistero Buffo: The Comic Mysteries
. This pointed comedy confronts contemporary attitudes about spirituality and politics with biting humor and heart wrenching tragedy. It is a series of one-act plays built around the concept of a traveling theater troupe like those of medieval times, that would visit villages and small towns across the land, entertaining the citizens with plays that often contained subversive political content. In this presentation from Arts at Emory, students and professional actors present Fo's comic tales in a lively street theater style.

Full of sizzling songs, seductive dance numbers and a story that packs a powerful punch in our fame-obsessed society, Chicago is set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s. It's the story of convicted murderers Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly, who will stop at nothing to get the attention of the press and celebrity attorney Billy Flynn. Their malicious crimes turn them into media darlings, producing a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today's tabloids. A smash on Broadway and in its film adaptation, this biting satire features the unforgettable music of John Kander and Fred Ebb, including "All That Jazz," "Cell Block Tango" and many more hits.
