More Information


The Sidewalk Studio Theatre proudly presents a special production of Charlatan.

Charlatan is a memoir of Sergei Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes. Written and Performed  by multiple Tony nominee Tony Tanner.


A towering figure in the world of art, Diaghilev was an Impresario who worked with creative giants… Fokine, Picasso, Cocteau, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Chanel and loved some of them.


Spoken in first person by the man himself, this memoir details that extraordinary moment when the Ballets Russes came to Paris for the first time in 1909 and started a revolution in the arts. Also examined, with pitiless honesty, his intense but ultimately tragic love for the dance genius Nijinsky.
