Music, dance, laughter and juggling combine at Merrimack
Repertory Theatre in the World Premiere of "Flings
& Eros," a new vaudevillian romp by the internationally
renowned Flying Karamazov Brothers. Directed by Paul
Magid, performances run September 10 - October 4. Merrimack Rep
is located at 50 E. Merrimack Street in Lowell, adjacent to Lowell Memorial
Of course, nothing during their rehearsal goes quite as
expected, and the Brothers take time in between scenes to muse on their
own loves, both past and present. The youngest Karamazov Brother, Zossima,
has a new girlfriend whose mysterious past is revealed as the K’s
work their way through The Bard’s classic scenes.
Paul Magid is a founding member of the Flying Karamazov Brothers and the last original member still performing with the group.
Mark Ettinger joined the group in 1998, bringing his skills as a juggler, singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. He received his Masters in Composition and Conducting from Mannes College of Music.
Rod Kimball is the group’s master juggler, and has been performing and teaching juggling since 1991. A native of New England, Kimball grew up in northern Maine and got his start as a juggler in Portland.
Stephen Bent is the youngest of the brothers and the newest addition to the group, having joined in the summer of 2008. Legend has it that his parents’ first date was a Flying Karamazov Brothers show at the Oscar Mayer Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1982. He attended his first show at the age of 13, and since then has yearned to join the group to which he owes his very existence.
