The great echo of the success of Palco Off’s . And now it will be the turn of Alberto Viscardi’s one man show, the comedy entitled Second Only to Elisabeth Taylor, on stage on Saturday 16 December at 9pm and Sunday 17 at 6pm at the Piccolo Teatro della Città di Catania. “On stage the events and misfortunes of a young man from a good family, exuberant and not always understood by his family. The story, colourful, funny, at times brilliantly neurotic, becomes an exhilarating interior analysis of the character. In his search for himself, our protagonist swings, spanning over time, the episodes and relationships that will allow him to find his identity. His place in the world. Always with composed elegance, covered in irony, Alberto Viscardi will now be a teenager, now a girl, now a boy, and again she will be his beloved and idolized mother, his grandmother, his aunts, Princess Sissi and Archduchess Sofia. Figures who will often come to his aid in the isolation of his room. Our hero is every woman who observes, but they are also his brothers… A very funny and at the same time intimate show about gender choices”, we read in a note.
