The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show
Jul 9, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Piper Theatre is proud to premiere The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show, a hybrid of bluegrass gig, vaudevillian scripted comedy and lowbrow pageantry, created and performed by Mike Shapiro and Kate Prascher. The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show sings and picks its way through the on- and off-stage exploits of its itinerant company, as they pine for and plot against each other and the audience that gathers each evening around their traveling wagons. The cast of characters performing variously onstage in The Buffalo Nickels Medicine Show includes: Leopold Finch, shady purveyor of patent remedies, with a nose for Achilles’ heels; Finch’s horse Mule; Mabel Morrow, brassy, bewitching, intoxicated by a crowd; Mabel’s daughter Bet; and Thomas, the rugged union organizer who plays his secrets close to the heart.
