The Off Center
This Eastside warehouse was converted into a performance venue in 1998 and since 1999 has been managed by nationally acclaimed theatre collective Rude Mechanicals, which has built it into a multi-arts space dedicated to confounding the boundaries that separate artistic genres and a community center for artists of all disciplines. The 99-seat black-box mainstage is where the ensemble-based company develops all its brave new works for the stage (The Method Gun, Stop Hitting Yourself, Lipstick Traces, et al.), but the Rudes have formed alliances with many other artists locally, nationally, and internationally, and make the Off Center available for their work as well. It’s a prime spot to catch thought-provoking and envelope-pushing new work.
This is Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's new comedy about right and wrong, sex and success, truth and the lies we choose to believe – especially in an election year. This is Barbara Chisholm leading an excellent cast featuring Aaron Johnson, André Martin, and Elizabeth Doss. This is 1) directed by Jenny Lavery for Theatre en Bloc and 2) recommended. Thu., Sept. 8 - Sun., Sept. 25Through Sept. 25. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. Pay it forward.
