    It Is Magic

    In this new Mickle Maher show, at a community theatre audition for a new adaptation of The Three Little Pigs intended for adult audiences, "two sisters set out to search for an actor to play the role of the Wolf. As they struggle to cast the right actor, they're quickly confronted with the darkness inside the audition room – and themselves." A setup like that is compelling enough; knowing it's scripted by the man who brought us There Is a Happiness That Morning Is and The Strangerer and so many other hefty shards of hilarious and cutting brilliance that, well, hell – we like good theatre, what can we say? And this one's directed by Mark Pickell for Capital T and features Jill Blackwood, Kathy Catmull, John Christopher, Robert Pierson, and Rebecca Robinson. UPDATE: And now this production's been reviewed by our own Robert Faires.
    Through Nov. 23. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.
