Bated Breath Theatre and "Well Digger’s Daughter"

The Wadsworth Atheneum change the movie for First Thursday - it is now "La fille du puisatier (The Well-Digger's Daughter)," a 2011 film directed by Daniel Auteuil.

It is being screened as part of their Free French Films weekend, celebrating the opening of the Medieval to Monet exhibition.  Movie lasts 107 minutes.


In addition, you can catch one of two Bated Breath Theatre Performances as part of this meetup.  I have scheduled for the later one during First Thursday (they also have one on Friday), but if you're interested in the other First Thursday events, feel free to arrive earlier.  The theme this month is "Moulin Rouge" and there will be can-can dancers, can-can lessons, French food and champagne, and the opportunity to make your own Tarot or playing cards, with your own meanings.

Bated Breath Theatre Company 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.

I worked with the actor playing Toulouse-Lautrec on a show last spring.  This should definitely be an interesting experience.  Come and enjoy!

    Look for me in a little black dress and striped tights; I'm a short brunette and carry a black-and-green purse. I'm going to try to make it for the 6:30pm performance if work cooperates.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
