About: The Glorious Ones

The Landor Theatre Ltd Presents The European Premier of

Set in 17th-century Italy, The Glorious Ones concerns a theatre group in the world of commedia dell’arte and theatre of the Italian Renaissance. It’s a sung valentine to the actor’s life, with its joys, hardships and sorrows, set during a period when the comic theatre was beginning to shed its vulgar roots and evolve toward a greater refinement. The Glorious Ones travel the length and breadth of Italy, playing commedia dell’arte in the streets and palaces with equal vigour. Founded by the ingenious madman Flaminia Scala, the small company of players endures passionate affairs, riots, disgrace – all manner of triumph and hardship. Pantalone the miser, sunny Armanda the dwarf and gossip loving Columbina view their myriad shared adventures through markedly different eyes. Yet not one of them is prepared for the strange twisting of the road brought about by the mysterious arrival of Isabella Andreini, who is about to change their wayward troupe....

After winning major critical acclaim with a revival of Lynn Ahrens’ and Stephen Flaherty’s Broadway musical, Ragtime – winning 3 OffWestEnd Theatre Awards and nominated Best Musical Revival in the Whatsonstage Awards – The Glorious Ones reunites the award-winning creative team behind that production –
Director Robert McWhir, Designer Martin Thomas and Lighting Designer Howard Hudson.
