CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – LIVE @ the Centre is taking a new approach to ticket pricing with a Pay-What-You-Will (PWYW) offer to see Compagnia Baccalà’s “PSS…PSS” on March 21 at 6 p.m. in the Homburg Theatre. The Charlottetown show is the only stop in the Maritimes for the duo on their Canadian tour.
“With PWYW, theatregoers of all walks of life can pay a price that is both fair and affordable,” says Darcy Campbell, director for LIVE @ the Centre. He goes on to explain, “By offering these special performances at a price our patrons set for themselves, we are hoping to reach new audiences.”
On the night of the show, patrons will receive an envelope to insert cash or use the slip inside to pay by credit card. Patrons are then asked to drop their envelopes in the bin located in the lobby, or hand them to staff who will be collecting them in baskets.
Inspired by Chaplin, Keaton and the stars of silent films, this Swiss, two-man team gives a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression. Inventive, exciting, ridiculous, this breathtaking show of mishaps and acrobatics entitled “PSS…PSS” will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. Winner of 15 international prizes, including the Cirque Du Soleil prize, “PSS…PSS” is brilliant, tender, hilarious and ingenious.
