Italian theater festival to open
Italy’s Dario D’Ambrosi, originator of the theatrical movement called Teatro Patologico (Pathological Theater), will open the sixth annual In Scena Italian Theater Festival on May 7 with a single night of his work, “Tutti Non Ci Sono/ We are Not Alone.” The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Cherry Lane Theater (38 Commerce St.). The festival, which will run through May 21, will feature a record 12 shows from Italy and will close with the fifth annual Mario Fratti Awards, honoring Italian playwriting. Fratti is the book writer of the Tony-winning musical Nine. Seven female authors are represented, and two of the works have LGBTQ themes. The shows and events are free.
