Bald Mountain Theater presents ‘La Rue Chagrin’

Stories filled with biting humor, longing and heartbreak, paired with live music and vocals embodying spontaneity and charm, are ideal fare for atmospheric November.

The lives of the two great French artists, Guy du Maupassant and Germaine Tailleferre, overlapped for just one year, but their works serve as perfect counterpoints.

Maupassant is known as one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of its most skillful producers. His stories are famous for putting a spotlight on the foibles and meanness of upper-class society with blistering insight and wit.

Tailleferre overcame sexism and abuse to become France’s most celebrated female composer.

Bald Mountain is thrilled to welcome performers Ruth Wallman and Susan Bushnell to the BMT stage, joining company members Ethan Bowen, Killian White and Erica Furgiuele.

Catch the show on Nov. 12-13, at 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 14, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at the door or online at All performances will be held at Spice Studio, 482 South Main St., Rochester.
