Flying Karamazov Brothers At The Palm, 12/27 & 12/28

 Telluride's Michael D. Palm Theatre hosts the Flying Karamazov Brothers December 27 and 28, 7:00 p.m. both nights.

Telluride local and friend Jeff Hauser called last week, hair on fire: the Flying Karamazov Brothers are skilled and screwy and not to be missed.
 
The New York Times agrees. In a review this past February, a critic wrote:

"The Flying Karamazov Brothers are a low-tech triumph. Employing a simple collection of props and a large supply of talent, the troupe‚Äôs current show, '4Play,' is as close to a sure thing as can be found onstage, 100 minutes of cleverness and comedy that go by in a flash… "

A more recent (August) review in The Huffington Post also raved"

"Those four Flying Karamazov Brothers are back in town and better than ever, with their zany, pun-laden, seriously skillful juggling and musical act, titled simply '4 Play.'"

The Flying Karamazov Brothers are a juggling and comedy troupe, performing since 1973. They learned their art performing as street artists in Santa Cruz, CA. The buskers then went on to international fame, performing on and off Broadway.

The "brothers" are not really brothers. The name of their act is a tip of the hat to the Fyodor Dostoevsky novel, "The Brothers Karamazov." The characters in the novel provide rich fodder for the act, in which the only thing that flies are pins and puns.

Lucky us. The Flying Karamazov Brothers are on tour. Their Telluride stop is Monday and Tuesday, December 27 and December 28, 7 p.m. at The Palm. Advanced tickets $20 for students and $30 for adults. Day of show, the price goes up $5.
