Just to get that out there first thing.  What is Knight of the Burning Pestle? It’s a play written by Francis Beaumont around 1607. Lucky him, he’s been overshadowed in history by some guy pretentious enough to land the epithet of ‘Bard of Avon’.  And that’s a real shame in its way, because Knight of the Burning Pestle is -damned- funny.


And there’s a production of it coming up by Theater@First.  Click on that link for the full details, but in short, April 23rd, 24th, 25th, 30th, and May 1st at 8pm, or May 2nd at 2pm at Unity Church in Somerville, within a song’s distance of Davis Square.


You won’t see me on the stage playing a part. I’m not directing or producing in any way. I’m not even doing tech.  You see, this show is going to have LIVE MUSIC, and I’m in the band.  One of the fun parts of the script is how often it references music from the period. So we’ve taken those, and some other appropriate period music, and will be enlivening the performances all for you.


Come see one of the best plays you don’t know.

This looks fantastic! Do you know how long it runs? (As in... one hour? Two hours?)
