    Suga

    Jason Phelps & Co. and Double Edge Theatre present this solo theatre piece by Travis Coe as the latest in the Rude Fusion series. It's an investigation of freedom and the bounds – personal, artistic, societal, and political – one must break through to achieve that end, with Coe, here directed by Stacy Klein, revealing all the aspects of himself – as queer, Afro- Caribbean/Latinx, and American – to find the path to sing, fly, and run … toward freedom.
    Wed.-Fri., March 4-6, 7pm. $15-30.
