7 (x1) Samurai
Performed by: David Gaines
Creator/Playwright: David Gaines

One man performs the entire epic story of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai (a three-hour movie) in 60 minutes — using only his body, gestures, voice (but no words), and two Kabuki-like masks — complete with victimized peasants, marauding bandits, samurai warriors and spectacular fight scenes — retold at comic breakneck pace. It is unique, riveting and very funny.

SCHEDULE CHANGE: Please note, this performance was originally scheduled to start at 11:00am on Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience this change in scheduling may cause.
