The Art of the Entertainer

A Vaudevillian Extravaganza
by Brandt Roberts

Available online
July 4 – August 1, 2020

The Commonweal Theatre is proud to present Brandt Roberts’ beloved tour de force homage to the Vaudeville stage and the early years of the silver screen, The Art of the Entertainer, in a new format—streaming video!

This one-man show is Brandt’s lighthearted way to share his love of the world of the stage and screen. Inspired by his passion for comedians like Chaplin, Keaton, Laurel & Hardy and the Marx Brothers, the show also pays homage to modern clowns like Bill Irwin and David Shiner. Produced here on stage in Lanesboro in 2017, The Art of the Entertainer has been re-imagined and developed for video so you can enjoy it safely at home.
