September 17–26 the Cherry Arts presents The Fan by Carlo Goldoni, a sprawling family-friendly farce from the still-hilarious 18th-century author of The Servant of Two Masters. The production will feature a socially-distanced cast with elaborate, comic COVID masks, and heightened (ridiculous) movement vividly visible to a distanced audience. In a new form we are calling 'lip-sync without lips,' the entire show will be performed to a prerecorded track replete with dialogue, music, and absurd sound effects. The show will be available to be watched online or in (distanced, outdoor, masked) person. A first experiment in 'lip-sync without lips' can be viewed online. The production is directed and in a new adaptation by Artistic Director Samuel Buggeln.

Outdoor seating positions will be arranged in 'pods' of 1-5 household members, to maintain distance more than twenty feet from the performers and well more than 10 feet from members in other “pods.” Covid safety measures will be in place that meet and exceed New York State's guidelines for “low risk outdoor arts and entertainment events.”
