Burning Bluebeard

A Canadian Premiere
Presented by Edmonton Actors Theatre as part of the Roxy Performance Series

Inspired by a true story, Burning Bluebeard tells the tale of six singed clowns who emerge from the burnt remains of a theatre to perform their spectacular Christmas Pantomime. This time they hope to finally reach the true happy ending of their second act and avoid the fateful fire destroyed Chicago’s Iroquois Theatre in 1903.
