La Bête

September 11 – October 12, 2014

On the F. Otto Haas Stage

Dazzling displays of verbal wit and manic farce distinguish this uproarious comedy featuring Arden favorite Scott Greer in the title role of “The Beast.” A crisis befalls a 17th century acting troupe when they are ordered to add an outrageous street performer to their ranks. High art meets low comedy in this tale of theatre, philosophy, and the beast that lives inside every great egomaniac. Directed by Emmanuelle Delpech, Philadelphia Magazine’s Best Theatre Artist of 2011, La Bête boasts a powerhouse performance by one of Philadelphia’s most gifted comedic actors.
