Flings & Eros 
Flings & Eros
September 10- October 4, 2009

Four men party at their own club of skills and muse of love in this creative retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  When those four men are the internationally renowned Flying Karamazov Brothers, the evening is guaranteed to be one that resounds with music, antic dance, emotion, hilarity, unexpected twists and, of course, world-class juggling.

Flying K's Visit Lowell Spinners

On September 1, The Flying Karamazov Brothers were on hand at LeLacheur Park to entertain the crowd at the Lowell Spinners game, and throw out the first pitch. The highlight of the evening, however, was The  Brothers getting the chance to meet Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky, who had his number 6 retired by the Spinners during the game.

Director Charles Towers, through memorable productions, a busy calendar, education programs, and local partnerships, has helped to make this theatre the top stage on the North Shore."
