Out & About: 'History ... Done Funny' presented at St. Vincent College
There's a reason they call themselves the Madcap Theater Company.
The Philadelphia-based duo of Kaylah Fitzgerald and Owen Timoney brought their fast-paced “History ... Done Funny” revue to St. Vincent College on Sept. 16 to kick off the 2016-17 History Dinner Theater Series hosted by the Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery.
With a trunk full of props and a couple of stools, the pair never broke stride as they raced through lore and legends surrounding the founding of the City of Brotherly Love and the feats and foibles of the Founding Fathers (and Mothers).
Waiting for dinner to begin, Diane Persin said she and husband Dennis and their children had seen the show years back while summering in Chautauqua, N.Y.
“They never missed a beat,” she said.
Greeting and seating the full house was gallery curator Lauren Churilla, who finally got to sit down and enjoy the evening with her husband, Corey.
Churilla said a sellout was the perfect way to open the five-installment series.
