Bated Breath Theatre Performances
First Thursday, November 1, 6:30 & 7:30 pm
Friday, November 2, 7pm | $5 (Includes screening of Children of Paradise)

Journey with the Bated Breath Theatre Company as we move through the grand marble staircases and landings of the Wadsworth Atheneum exploring the complicated life and art of painter Toulouse-Lautrec. Bated Breath will pull you into Lautrec’s seductive world of Montmartre and the Moulin Rouge in Paris during the late 1800’s, through the embodiment and exploration of both the beautiful and the grotesque images that haunt Lautrec’s work. Performance time: 20 minutes.
