One-of-a-kind show brings power of friendship to life
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
A one-man show atop Stage 2 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is a testament to the power of imagination — one so powerful the show may be taking on a life of its own.
The performance art piece, “Balloonacy” is described as a “tender, laugh-out-loud comedy,” which is written by Barry Kornhauser; directed by Jose Casas; and performed by Rick Araiza of Teatro Bravo!
“Balloonacy is a tender, uplifting, laugh-out-loud comedy show. Sweet, inventive, and packed with physical comedy, this family-friendly play explores the power of friendship and shows how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere,” promoters of the Scottsdale performance say. “A mischievous balloon finds its way into the home of a solitary man, and suddenly his curmudgeonly life is interrupted, a single balloon changing his life forever.”
The play “Balloonacy” plays from Friday, July 8, through Sunday, July 10, during matinee showtimes at Stage 2.
Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is at 7380 E. 2nd St.
