Commedia dell'arte was an early form of professional theatre originating in Italy that was extremely popular in Europe from the 16th to the 18th century. It is a form of theatre characterized by masked "types," and improvised performances based on sketches or scenarios. A Commedia, such as The Tooth Puller, is both scripted and improvised. Characters' entrances and exits are scripted. A special characteristic of commedia dell'arte are the lazzi. A lazzo is a joke or "something foolish or witty", usually well known to the performers and to some extent a scripted routine.  Another characteristic of commedia dell'arte is a pantomime.  Jonesborough Repertory Theatre brings back this age-old art form back to the stage with the story of Mark Twain's "The Prince and the Pauper" as performed by Punchin, Rosetta, Columbine, Arlequin, & Scaramouche (a.k.a. Punch & Judy).
