The idea of the play had intrigued me: a biography of the original bad boy of French literature. However, the play turned out to be really, really badly written. The best within this disaster could have been the recitation of Villon's poetry. But the actor raced through those lines and made them unintelligible.

About the Ticket Supplier: Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival
Padua Playwrights continues a writing, performance, and teaching tradition that began Off Off Broadway and was sustained and refined at the Padua Hills Playwrights Workshop/Festival. The Festival prospered on the right balance between teaching a serious writing workshop and the production of a professional festival of new work.Moving indoors, Padua has traded the raw immediacy of site-specific outdoor performances for the focus and finesse of an indoor theater space. Continued, however, is Padua’s exploration of the spoken word and its myriad connections to the possibility of real meaning.
