On February 27, The Fourth Wall ensemble performed their vaudeville-inspired show “Fruit Flies Like a Banana” at the Texas State Performing Arts Center’s Recital Hall.
Part of The Fourth Wall’s mission is to create programming that engages everyone from all ages and all musical backgrounds through a new hybrid of the performing arts in which musicians are also actors and dancers. In a theater, breaking the fourth wall brings the world on stage directly into the audience. As an ensemble, The Fourth Wall breaks the barrier between serious art and serious fun.
