Commedia Beauregard has teamed up with the Museum of Bad Art to take six works of art from their permanent collection and translate them into short plays.   Fulfilling the mission of Commedia Beauregard to translate not only from language to language, but from one art form to another, the six playwrights each write a 15-minute play that tells the story of, or behind, one of the paintings from the MOBA collection.  Six local directors then take those plays and bring them to the Bryant-Lake Bowl Cabaret Theatre stage on four consecutive Sundays!

The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) is a community-based, private institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory.

MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA's collection and ambitions have grown exponentially.
