Elm City troupe to bring invention to life

Pierre Lallement lived in Ansonia when he invented the bicycle

NEW HAVEN - Bike on down Saturday to Westville’s 15th Annual Art Walk as A Broken Umbrella Theatre premieres a new play with music. 
A cast of kid-friendly goofballs will bring the invention of the bicycle to life in an innovative, site-specific play. 
Brimming with original music infused with the spirit of the 1980s and spectacular design complete with spinning bike parts, "Head Over Wheels" celebrates community, cycling, and conquering fear.
Shows are at 2 and 4 p.m. outdoors at 446A Blake St., rain or shine.
General admission price is pay what you can pay. Running time is 40 minutes.
Parking is available in a lot, on-site. Additional street parking is located throughout Westville Village.
 Ansonia Cultural Commission Chairman Judy Nicolari said in an e-mail today: "It's supposed to be a beautiful day, so let's show Ansonia support. New Haven is supporting us with our second annual Pierre Lallement Festival of Bikes on June 3. Spread the word. It will be time well spent."

I have had the delightful privilage of taking in the play. It was entertaining as well as informative, and sent a message to the audience which was a mix of all ages. The Elm City troupe also encouraged audience involvement. It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
