Travesties at Bay Steet Theater June 24 - July 20!
The Tony Award-Winning Comedy Travesties is Now Running at Bay Street 
Travesties, a Tony Award-winning comedy written by Tom Stoppard celebrates its 40th anniversary from June 24 to July 20 at Bay Street Theater! Set in both 1917 and 1974 in Zurich, Switzerland, this play fantasizes how a British consul named Henry Carr meets some of the most famous figures of the 20th century—including Lenin, James Joyce, and Tristan Tzara—through an amateur production of The Importance of Being Earnest. Travesties is a theatrical extravaganza with the wit of Oscar Wilde joined by song-and-dance, strip-tease, pie-fights, and brilliant wordplay!
