- Unlike those of us merely amused by Laughing Sal -- the maniacal, cackling,
mechanical puttet behind glass at the Musee Mechanique - director Sarah
Ells is obsessed. Through Sal's smiling squint Ells found the secrets buried
under Playland at the Beach, and she realized the horrors behind the cackle.
Follow Ells and co-obsessive Roberto Gutierrez Varea back through time
as they travel with a mechanical circus from a penny arcade., driven to
murder and anarchy by the spirit of Laughing Sal. Sal opens at the EXIT
Theatre on Thursday, July 9, at 8p.m. Tickets are $12; call 242-5797.
