“A company of daredevil dancers leaping and cavorting.” — Los Angeles Times
The gymnasts and dancers of Diavolo evoke playfulness in all they do as they manipulate, tumble, climb, and catapult with ease from oversize sets and props, combining skill and imagery with silliness, trickery, and effortless movement. The props are as interesting as the dances themselves. Think giant skateboard ramps and 10-foot metal rings. While at Laxson Auditorium, they will be performing Transit Space. A Diavolo performance is always entertaining — in a BIG way!

Set in York, Pennsylvania in 1958, this farce centers on two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors, Leo Clark and Jack Gable. The pair discover through a newspaper that Florence, an older ailing woman, has been unable to find Max and Steve, her sister’s children who moved away to England as children in order to include them in her multi-million dollar inheritance. They decide to pose as Max and Steve to claim portions of it. When they discover that “Max” and “Steve” are actually “Maxine” and “Stephanie,” they continue on, undaunted, in drag. Leo falls for Florence’s actual niece Meg, while Jack swoons over Florence’s part-time aide Audrey. Florence recovers just as the pair arrives, but they decide to keep on, both to try to outlast her health and to stay close to the objects of their interest. Leo convinces Meg, who is enamored of Shakespeare and a fan of Jack and Leo, to put on a production at Florence’s estate, to give himself more of an opportunity to be with her, both as Leo and Maxine. Meanwhile, Meg’s fiance Duncan grows increasingly suspicious of the “Leading Ladies.”
