Fresh off their tour to West Texas, La Fenice, Austin's long running Commedia dell'Arte troupe, will return home to debut their latest scenario, For Whom the Dong Tolls at the Butterfly Bar (outside the Vortex) on Thursday, May 23, Friday, May 24 and Wednesday, May 29, all at 8pm. We'll also be bringing some exciting and fabulous special guests!

For Whom the Dong Tolls follows the story of Arlecchino, a carefree fellow who has traveled to Venice to settle a debt with his old friend, Orlando. However, Orlando's father, the world-famous alchemist Dottore, has recently been murdered for his mystical secrets by rival wizard Pantalone. To make matters worse, Pantalone has snatched both Dottore's book of Spells and his beautiful young intern Olivia. Arlecchino, Orlando and Columbina, Olivia's saucy governess, must stage a daring rescue, braving the sword-wielding Capitano and Pantalone's gauntlet of borrowed magics.

Starring Dr. Gian Giacomo Colli, Tate Green, Genevieve Kinney, Aaron Johnson, Kate Meehan and Adam Rodriguez, with music by Bruce Salmon.

Adult themes, unlicensed proctology, singing, dancing, sword play, and bad magic tricks.
