The life of Oscar Wilde replayed onstage
Leslie Clark, of the Paris-based Dear Conjunction Theatre Company, performs a play based on the life of Oscar Wilde in the University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts.
Earlier this week, as I glanced over the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts website in preparation for tomorrow's Gusto cover story on its upcoming season, I came across a surprising listing for a show about Oscar Wilde that will be performed tonight and Friday in the CFA's Drama Theatre.
Because I wasn't able to fit that into tomorrow's preview, I wanted to make a mention of it. The show, "More Lives Than One," is presented by the Dear Conjunction Theatre Company, a bilungual outfit based in Paris. Performer Leslie Clark plays Wilde, and takes audiences on a tour of his sometimes charmed, sometimes tragic life using excerpts from his plays and famous quotations. Here's a review of Clark's performance of the show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
