Onstage this Weekend

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 12:46 PM

There is an important message hidden inside this blog post. It's unrelated to theater. I'm trying to trick you into reading about theater. Will it work?

No openings this weekend that I know of, but a few good ongoing offerings:

CoHo Productions closes their season with The Uneasy Chair, an existential comedy disguised as a period piece. I really, really liked this show, and I think you should go see it.

The Miracle Theatre's The Shrunken Head of Pancho Villa is a different kind of period piece—a fast-paced and frenetic relic of the Chicano rights movement of the 1960s, it smooshes together Mexican and American cultures on a stage that isn't big enough for the both of 'em.

On Thursday, June 11 at Club 21, Mercury/Blogtown trivia night. Why're we scheduling it so far in advance? Because special guest-friend Kiala Kazebee will be in town.

Everyone Who Looks Like You, the newest from Hand2Mouth, is out at Milepost 5. Andrew Stout gives the show a tepid review in this week's paper—but I'm still curious. This ensemble's failures are more interesting than other companies' successes.

And I would be remiss in not mentioning "MILFs at Wilfs" at 7 pm tonight.

More theater listings here.
