Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More

What a nice surprise this event turned out to be. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very impressed at how talented both entertainers were. Also there was no hassle in picking up our tickets which made for an easy entrance.

- Just nominated by the New York critics for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience
- !"Endearingly Chaplinesque." --Newsday
- "A must see show...nothing but fabulous." --The Daily Gazette
Jamie Adkins has a great idea for a show - he just doesn't quite know what it is. Every crumpled-up sheet of paper he tosses away only makes this rubber-faced clown more determined to get his creation down on paper. Then one of those balls of paper bounces right back at him! This turn of events finally coaxes the Chaplinesque playwright away from his typewriter and what ensues is a non-stop barrage of hilarious escapades and amazing feats of silliness. Egged on by the melodies of a roving musician-comedian, Anne-Marie Levasseur, Jamie holds on for dear life at the top of a splitting ladder, wrestles with his own bulbous red nose, and flips and somersaults across a slack wire. A former member of Montreal's highly-regarded Cirque Eloize and the Pickle Family Circus, Jamie brings impeccable timing and boundless wit to a show in which fun is spelled "T-y-p-o."
Recommended for all ages.
